Monitoring antigen-specific T cell frequency and function is essential to assess the host immune response to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. Here, we present a FluoroSpot assay for concurrently detecting ex vivo antiviral cytokine production by SARS-CoV-2-specific T cells following peptide stimulation. We then detail intracellular cytokine staining by flow cytometry to further validate the FluoroSpot assay results and define the specific T cell subpopulations. For complete details on the use and execution of this protocol, please refer to Tiezzi et al. (2023).1

Abstract

Monitoring antigen-specific T cell frequency and function is essential to assess the host immune response to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. Here, we present a FluoroSpot assay for concurrently detecting ex vivo antiviral cytokine production by SARS-CoV-2-specific T cells following peptide stimulation. We then detail intracellular cytokine staining by flow cytometry to further validate the FluoroSpot assay results and define the specific T cell subpopulations. For complete details on the use and execution of this protocol, please refer to Tiezzi et al. (2023).1
