Differential phenotypes of CD8 T cells by location correlates with enhanced expansion and activation marker upregulation on the effector/effector memory T cell phenotype. Mice were treated with anti-CD40/IL-2 immunotherapy and assessed for various immune parameters on day 12 of treatment in lymphoid (spleen or LN) or peripheral (lungs or liver) organs. Frequencies of NKG2D+ (a-b) and PD-1+ (c-d) in CD25negCD44highCD8+ T cells in control (a, c) and anti-CD40/IL-2 (b, d) treated mice as stratified by TCM (CD62L+, white) and TE/EM (CD62L-, black). These data are representative of 2-3 independent experiments with 3 mice per group. Data are presented as mean ± SEM. Statistics were derived using ANOVA with Bonferroni’s post-test, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001
