Anti-human CD5 antibodies for use in flow cytometry. These single-color reagents are of value to the study of normal and neoplastic T and B cells.
CD5 is a 67 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein. CD5 appears early in thymocyte development and is expressed at low density on thymocytes and at high density on all mature T lymphocytes. CD5 is also expressed on a subpopulation of normal B cells. Antibodies to CD5 are well-suited for detecting normal and neoplastic T and B cells, e.g. in chronic lymphocytic leukemia and centrocytic lymphoma.
