MA5-17908 targets CD5/Ly-1 in FACS applications and shows reactivity with Mouse samples.
The MA5-17908 immunogen is cBA Mouse thymocytes.
The CD5, a transmembrane protein, is found on 95%of thymocytes and 72% of peripheral blood lymphocytes. In lymph nodes, the main reactivity is observed in T cell areas. CD5 is expressed by many T cell leukemia, lymphomas, and activated T cells. Occasionally, CD5 antigen is also expressed on a subset of B cells. Mantle cell lymphomas (same as diffuse centrocytic lymphomas) are CD5+ while the follicle center cell lymphoma are CD5-.
