Figure 1

Leukocyte subsets in healthy normal weight and obese subject. Isolated PBMCs from healthy normal weight and obese subjects were stained with antibodies and analyzed by flow cytometry. (A) NK (CD56+CD3) cells as percentage of lymphocytes; (B) CD56bright cells and (C) CD56dim cells as percentage of NK cells. (D) Representative flow cytometry dot plots of CD56bright and CD56dim cells from a normal weight individual; insert in the dot plot show the prior gaiting for NK cells (CD56+CD3) in the upper left quadrant. (E) CD3+CD56+ cells as percentage of lymphocytes; (F) T (CD3+CD56) cells as percentage of lymphocytes. Data are expressed as mean + SEM. Significant effects of obese vs. normal weight subjects are indicated by an asterisk *p < 0.05.
