Abstract

Unlike other techniques, flow cytometric analysis of BrdU-quenched 33258 Hoechst fluorescence may be used to measure cell activation and the G1, S, and G2/M compartment distributions in each of three successive cell cycles after growth stimulation of human peripheral blood lymphocytes. Cell cycle kinetic curves can be constructed from the BrdU-Hoechst flow data which allow the simultaneous assessment of growth fraction, lag-time, compartment exit rate, compartment duration, and compartment arrest. Applications of this new versatile technique include the evaluation of drug and growth factor effects, cell aging, and diagnosis in medicine and immunology.
