Murine adoptive CD8 + T-cell immunotherapy studies require the generation of large numbers of high viability CD8 + cells. Here we report a tissue culture protocol for the reliable expansion of CD8 + T-cells derived from murine spleen to give a 20-fold expansion after 4 days in culture. The cells were transfected with an mRNA GFP construct and transferred into NOD mice. GFP positive cells could be detected 7 days after transfer thus confirming that the cells survive and are functional for up to 1 week.
