Phase one with high dose C-peptide. Antigen-specific P14 T cells (green) and control OT-I T cells (blue) interacted with 10μM C-peptide pulsed CD11c+ DCs (red). The peptide-pulsed DCs (20μM CMTMR) were injected with 10ng LPS into the footpad of a recipient C57BL6 mouse. 18 hours later, P14 CD8+ T cells (2.5μM CMFDA, green) and control, OT-I CD8+ T cells (10μM CMAC, blue) were injected i.v. followed 2h later by 100ug Mel-14 antibody i.v. Images were collected from 2.5-3.5h after T cell transfer by MPM-IVM of the right popliteal LN in an anesthetized mouse in the z dimension over a distance of 40μm. Bar = 10μm.
