From: CD56bright cells respond to stimulation until very advanced age revealing increased expression of cellular protective proteins SIRT1, HSP70 and SOD2

Fig. 1

Gating strategy performed for NK cell subsets of the young (a), the old aged under 85 (b) and the oldest aged over 85 (c). Upper dot plots refer to lymphocyte gating - lymphocytes (G1) were gated within PBMC population based on FSC and SSC parameters. Lower dot plots refer to NK cell subsets gating: CD56dim (G2) and CD56bright (G3) cells were discriminated by low vs. high expression of CD56 within NK cell population defined as CD3 negative and CD56 positive cells (CD3-CD56+)
