Figure 6

Generalised down-modulation of CD126 in leukocytes from patients with moderate-severe asthma. Monocytes (a), neutrophils (b), and lymphocytes (c,d) were gated on a flow cytometry FSC/SSC plot. Afterwards, lymphocytes were further subdivided into CD4 (c) and CD4+ (d) cells. The number of CD126 antibodies bound per cell (ABC; median ± IQR1-3; see Material and Methods section) was measured on every population (ad) in intermittent-mild (IMA; N = 102) and moderate-severe (MSA; N = 90) asthma patients. Statistically significant differences between these two groups of donors are indicated (t-test: P < 0.05).
