Different distribution of MAIT subsets in EMS and control patients. a and b show a significant increase of PB and PF MAIT cells (CD3 + CD161+ TCRV α 7.2+) from EMS group as compared with the control group. c and d display higher levels of PF CD4 and CD8 MAIT cells subpopulations from EMS patients as compared to those from controls. e and f exhibit a remarkable downregulation of PF DN MAIT cells in EMS group. Scatter plot represents the frequencies of MAIT cells in EMS group (n = 32 in PB and n = 29 in PF) and control group (n = 18 in PB and n = 10 in PF). * indicates P < 0.05 and ** indicates P < 0.01
