Table 1 Microparticles (MPs) in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from our patient with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and from four healthy controls, respectively

From: Leukocyte-derived microparticles and scanning electron microscopic structures in two fractions of fresh cerebrospinal fluid in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: a case report

Individuals CSF fraction Phosphatidylserine CD42a CD144 CD45
Patient CSF I 3544 4 4 2526
Patient CSF II 2009 5 13 1873
Controls CSF I 32 9 2 6
Controls CSF II 31 8 1 7
  1. Flow cytometry was used to detect microparticles from platelets (CD42a), endothelial cells (CD144) and leukocytes (CD45) in the first (CSF I) and second fraction (CSF II) of cerebrospinal fluid. The results are presented as number of microparticles detected in the cerebrospinal fluid. See Figure2 for further information on the method.
