CD25 - Mouse monoclonal 4C9BSB 6317-BSB 6323
CD25 is the alpha chain of the IL-2 receptor. It is a Type I transmembrane protein present on activated T-cells, activated B-cells, some thymocytes, myeloid precursors, and oligodendrocytes that associates with CD122 to form a heterodimer that can act as a high-affinity receptor for IL-2. It is expressed in most B-cell neoplasms, some Acute Non-lymphocytic Leukemias, and Neuroblastomas. Expression of CD25 is a reliable diagnostic tool for distinguishing neoplastic mast-cell aggregates from reactive proliferations, and has, therefore, recently become a minor criterion for the diagnosis of Systemic Mastocytosis (SM). Anti-CD25 antibodies have also been useful in identifying mast cells in skin biopsies in the setting of Urticaria Pigmentosa, which is predictive of Systemic Mastocytosis. Quantitation of regulatory T-cells (Treg) in the setting of hepatocellular carcinoma has been used as an independent predictive factor for tumor recurrence after hepatic resection for HCC. Also, the percentage of tumor-infiltrating CD25+FOXP3+ regulatory T-cells among tumor cells, inside tumor parenchyma and at its periphery are significantly higher in recurrent Cutaneous Melanoma than in Non-recurrent Melanoma.
Available options include prediluted (3ml, 7 ml, 15ml), concentrate (0.1 ml, 0.5ml, 1ml) and 5+ control slides.
