We are treating ficoll isolated PBMC for 24 hours with 100ng/ml LPS and have noticed the percentage of monocytes in the recovered cells (we detach any attached monocytes with TryplE) is reduced by 50% or more. We saw a similar loss with 10ng/ml LPS. Treatment of parallel cells with PGN does not produce this effect. Cells are grown in RMPI-1640+glutamine+10% low endotoxin FBS+pen/strep. LPS is from Sigma Aldrich 055:B5 (cat#:L6529). Is this seen by others or do we have a problem? Thanks for your advice as always.
