CD2 antibodies – functional grade, mouse

Clone: RM2-5
The monoclonal antibody RM2-5 recognizes the type I transmembrane glycoprotein CD2, also known as LFA-2 or Ly-37. In mouse, CD2 is expressed on all lymphocytes except a subpopulation of intraepithelial T lymphocytes. It is a major receptor for CD48 and is involved in activation and differentiation of T cells. CD2-mediated cell-cell adhesion can be blocked by the RM2-5 antibody.


The CD2 pure – functional grade antibody is suited for functional assays, for example, blocking of CD2-mediated cell-cell adhesion.

Alternative Names
