E-rosettes


E-rosettes
The clustering of sheep erythrocytes (=E) around a leucocyte or other cell. E-rosette formation is used as a marker for T-lymphocytes of humans and most mammals; in this case E are untreated, compared with other rosette tests such as EA where E have antibody bound to their surface.
