CD24 is a two-chain glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored glycoprotein expressed at multiple stages of B-cell development, beginning with the bone marrow pro-B-cell compartment and continuing through mature, surface Ig positive B-cells. Plasma cell expression is very low or negative. CD24 is also expressed on the majority of B-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemias, B-cell CCLs and B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. CD24 may play a role in regulation of B-cell proliferation and maturation, and control of autoimmunity.
