Advancing age causes physiologic decline in tissue function. In the hematopoietic system this manifests as a progressive reduction in blood or immune cell function and clonal hematopoiesis, where a mutated hematopoietic stem cell can dominate blood cell production and confer an increased propensity for myeloid malignancy. In the aging cardiovascular system, atherosclerosis causes an inflammatory cell- driven accumulation of lipid-derived plaques in major arteries which constrains blood flow and can lead to myocardial infarction and stroke. Clonal hematopoiesis in the elderly has recently been associated with a substantially increased risk of atherosclerosis-related cardiovascular disease. However, the direct association between deregulated hematopoiesis in clonal hematopoiesis and atherosclerosis is poorly defined. Herein, we describe a flow cytometry method to prospectively analyze the crucial hematopoietic stem/progenitor, inflammatory and lymphoid cell participants in atherosclerosis. This analysis can be applied to decipher the complex relationship between hematopoietic cell types involved in clonal hematopoiesis and atherosclerosis in mouse models.
