Specifications for CD2 antibodies

Overview

LT2 recognizes the human CD2 antigen, a 50 kDa single-chain transmembrane glycoprotein also known as LFA-2 or receptor for sheep erythrocytes. CD2 belongs to the Ig superfamily and is involved in cell signaling and lymphocyte adhesion. The CD2 antibody reacts with 80–90 % of peripheral blood lymphocytes and more than 95 % of thymocytes. The antibody recognizes all T cells and a subset of NK cells.

Applications

Reagent can be used for immunophenotyping by flow cytometry. Abnormal numbers of cells expressing this antigen or aberrant expression levels of the antigen can be expected in some disease states. It is important to understand the normal expression pattern for this antigen and its relationship to expression of other relevant antigens in order to perform appropriate analysis. Expression of CD2 may be used as aid to diagnostic in the characterization of samples from individuals suspected with hematologic neoplasia.

Alternative names

LFA-2, SRBC-R, T11
