CD56 antibodies

CD56 antibodies

Clone: REA196
REA196 recognizes the human CD56 antigen, a glycoprotein of the Ig-superfamily, also known as neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM), which is expressed in blood on practically all resting and activated NK cells and on a minor subset of CD3
+
T cells. CD56 is also expressed in brain (cerebellum and cortex) and at neuromuscular junctions. Certain large granular lymphocyte (LGL) leukemias, small-cell lung carcinomas, neuronal-derived tumors, myelomas, and myeloid leukemias also express CD56.
Additional information: Clone REA196 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors.

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 CD56 may be used as aid to diagnostic in the characterization of samples from individuals suspected with hematologic neoplasia.
