0.0001). Secondly, the influence of the permeabilization procedure on LAP expression was investigated in 38 AML samples at diagnosis and in 42 MRD samples. Quantification of the frequency of LAP+ cells with and without permeabilization showed no significant differences (diagnosis: P= 0.57, follow-up: P= 0.43). The flow cytometric protocol thus enables analysis of apoptosis-related proteins at different stages of the disease, which will lead to a better understanding of the role of apoptosis resistance in the emergence of MRD in AML.
