CD45 - Mouse MRQ-13BSB 5246-BSB 5252
The CD45 antigen is a protein which was originally called Leukocyte Common Antigen. It is a Type I transmembrane protein which is in various forms present on all differentiated hematopoietic cells except erythrocytes and assists in the activation of those cells (a form of co-stimulation). It is expressed in Lymphomas, B-cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, Hairy Cell Leukemia, and Acute Non-lymphocytic Leukemia. CD45 is a monoclonal antibody that is routinely used to aid in the differential diagnosis of undifferentiated neoplasms, whenever malignant Lymphoma is suspected by the morphological or clinical data. It is a highly specific antibody; thus, a positive result is highly indicative of lymphoid or myeloid origin. Certain types of lymphoid neoplasms may lack CD45 (Hodgkin’s Disease, some T-cell Lymphomas and some Leukemias) so its absence does not rule out a hematolymphoid tumor. This antibody is exclusively expressed by cells of hematopoietic lineage and is present in most benign and malignant lymphocytes, erythrocytes and plasma cell precursors.
Available options include prediluted (3ml, 7 ml, 15ml), concentrate (0.1 ml, 0.5ml, 1ml) and 5+ control slides.
