Cytek® cFluor® MDSC Kit
Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) are neutrophils and monocytes that possess potent immunosuppressive activity. The Cytek® cFluor® MDSC Kit has been designed and optimized to identify and analyze MDSCs. The panel includes markers to identify MDSCs, and its subsets monocytic MDSC (M-MDSC) and granuclocytic/polymorphonuclear MDSC (PMN-MDSC). A few newly identified MDSC markers, aka CD84, LOX-1, and CD181, could help to delineate the MDSC subsets and may also serve as indictors of cell status. MDSCs have been shown to play an important role in regulating immune responses in cancer and other pathological conditions, including chronic infection, sepsis, and autoimmunity.

Figure 1: Cell gating hierarchy for identifying MDSCs using the Cytek cFluor MDSC Kit. Data was generated using whole blood collected in EDTA from a healthy donor. Sequential gates are set to select single cells and remove debris. Total white blood cells are identified as CD45+ single cells. Additional gates are followed to exclude eosinophils, basophils, potentially contaminated platelets, and CD66+CD16++ classical neutrophils. The remaining cells are used to gate on lymphoid lineage negative and HLA-DRlow or negative cells. From the CD33+CD11b+ gate myeloid cells that contain the MDSC population are further classified into CD14+ M-MDSCs and CD15+ PMN-MDSCs. An additional gate on the CCR3– region further eliminates eosinophil contamination if present. The level of expression of the additional markers CD84, CD181, and LOX-1 are assessed on MDSC subsets.
Whole blood collected in K2EDTA, Heparin, ACD and Cyto-Chex® BCT blood tubes have been tested to validate the performance of this kit. PBMCs and tissue infiltrating leukocytes have also been tested and validated.
