Mouse Anti-Human CD5 (Clone UCHT-2) recognizes Human CD5. This monoclonal antibody was purified using multi-step affinity chromatography methods such as Protein A or G depending on the species and isotype. Anti-Human CD5 recognizes a human T-lymphocyte antigen (Mr 67 kDa).
The CD5 antigen is present on approximately 70% of normal peripheral blood lymphocytes and >90% of all T-lymphocytes. T-lymphocytes in the thymus stain weakly while peripheral T-cells stain strongly. Monocytes, granulocytes and NK cells are not stained.1 Anti-CD5 also reacts with a distinct subset of normal B-lymphocytes, occasional cells in B-lymphocyte areas of spleen and lymph node, and most Ig+ B-chronic lymphoblastic leukemia (CLL) cells. The CD5 antigen has also been shown to be present on some lymphomas.
Anti-Human CD5 can be used in research to study B-lymphocyte subsets or characterization of leukemias and lymphomas.
