Additional file 1: of End stage renal disease patients have a skewed T cell receptor Vβ repertoire

Figure S1. Absolute number of circulating CD4+ and CD8+ T cells in young (n = 8) and elderly healthy individuals (HI, n = 8) with skewing in TCR Vβ repertoire compared to age-matched HI without skewing in TCR Vβ repertoire (young n = 18; elderly n = 17). Figure S2. Absolute number of CD31-expressing naive and relative telomere length (RTL) of CD4+ and CD8+ T cells of healthy individuals (HI) with skewing in TCR Vβ repertoire compared to age-match HI without skewing in TCR Vβ repertoire. Figure S3. A typical example of the gating strategy to dissect the different T cell subsets prior to sorting (A) and the analysis of the purity of CD4+ naive/memory sorted samples (B).
