Isolation, Expansion, and Characterization of Natural Killer Cells and Their Precursors as a Tool to Study Cancer Immunosurveillance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This chapter will describe the current methodologies to isolate and expand NK cells from Peripheral Blood (PB) or tissues for "in vitro" studies, including NK cell antitumor immune function. In addition, methods to induce NK cell maturation, differentiation, and expansion from CD34+ precursors will also be described. Finally, it will also be treated the topical issue of the characterization of new functionally and phenotypically defined NK cell subsets.
