Total lymphocyte CD8 expression is not a reliable marker of cytotoxic T-cell populations in human peripheral blood following an acute bout of high-intensity exercise

Journal Article
Campbell, J. P., Guy, K., Cosgrove, C., Florida-James, G., & Simpson, R. J. (2008)
Total lymphocyte CD8 expression is not a reliable marker of cytotoxic T-cell populations in human peripheral blood following an acute bout of high-intensity exercise. Brain, Behavior, and Immunity, 22(3), 375-380. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.bbi.2007.09.001
Cytotoxic T-lymphocytes co-express the T-cell receptor, CD3 and the MHC I restricted antigen CD8. Although total CD8 expression is often used to identify CD8+ T-cells in blood...
