Effects of B cell activating factor (BAFF) on perforin and granzyme B expression of CD8+ cells from COPD patients. CD8+ cells isolated from COPD patients were treated with control, recombinant human BAFF (rhBAFF) or rhBAFF plus BR3-Fc (BAFF antagonist) and the expression levels of perforin (PRF) and granzyme B (GZMB) were detected. The relative mRNA levels of PRF (a) and GZMB (b) in the CD8+ cells from COPD patients (n = 10) are shown. *P < 0.05. NS, nonsignificant
