Table 4 Flow cytometry analysis of the expression of CD83 and CD86 markers. LPS-stimulated DCs in combination with different inducers were evaluated for the expression of CD83 and CD86 markers

From: Evaluation of immunomodulatory effects of Boswellia sacra essential oil on T-cells and dendritic cells
