Strain specific analysis of CCR8 gene expression in B-hCCR8 mice by FACS. MC38 cells were inoculated into wild-type C57BL/6 (+/+) and homozygous B-hCCR8 mice (H/H). Tumors were harvested at the endpoint of experiment, and the TILs were analyzed by flow cytometry. Human CCR8 was both detectable on CD4+ T cells and Treg cells in tumors of homozygous B-hCCR8 mice, and mouse CCR8 was detectable only in wild-type mice.

Analysis of spleen leukocyte subpopulations by FACS. Splenocytes were isolated from female C57BL/6 and B-hCCR8 mice (n=3, 8-week-old). Flow cytometry analysis of the splenocytes were performed to assess leukocyte subpopulations. A. Representative FACS plots. Single live cells were gated for the CD45+ population and used for further analysis as indicated here. B. Results of FACS analysis. Percent of T cell, B cell, NK cell, monocyte, dendritic cell, granulocyte and macrophage in homozygous B-hCCR8 mice were similar to those in the C57BL/6 mice, demonstrating that CCR8 humanized does not change the overall development, differentiation or distribution of these cell types in spleen. Values are expressed as mean ± SEM.

Analysis of T cell subpopulation in spleen, thymus and blood.The lymphocytes were isolated from spleen, thymus and blood in C57BL/6 and B-hCCR8 mice (n=3, 8-week-old). The proportion of T cells subpopulation was tested by flow cytometry. There were no differences between C57BL/6 and B-hCCR8 mice, demonstrating that humanized of CCR8 does not change the overall development, differentiation or distribution of these T cell subtypes. Values are expressed as mean ± SEM.

Protein expression analysis of mouse and human CCR8 in tumor


from clipboard


Strain specific analysis of CCR8 gene expression in B-hCCR8 mice by FACS. TILs were harvested at the endpoint of experiment, and analyzed by flow cytometry. Human CCR8 was both detectable on CD4+ T cells and Treg cells in tumors of homozygous B-hCCR8 mice, and mouse CCR8 was detectable in wild-type mice.

Strain specific analysis of CCR8 gene expression in B-hCCR8 mice by FACS. Splenocytes were harvested at the endpoint of experiment, and analyzed by flow cytometry. Mouse CCR8 was slightly expressed in Treg cells in spleen of wild-type mice, but human CCR8 was not detectable in homozygous B-hCCR8 mice. Because the CCR8 expression was low in the spleen, so maybe the CCR8 expressed much lower in the spleen of homozygous B-hCCR8 mice that we can’t detect it, or the antibody dose we used in this experiment is not saturated.
