CD5 is a unique protein that functions as a classifier on the front of distinct types of T-cells as well as a subset of B-cells called B-1a. In the field of haematology and blood topology, the specific functionality and significance of the CD5 protein as a transmitter and differentiator is a contentious topic.
Normal T-lymphocytes are detected using CD5 antibody testing and staining. Most precursor T-cell lymphoblastic lymphomas/leukaemia and mature T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas exhibit it at normal or anomalous levels. Some standard B-cell subsets may have low CD5 expression.
CD5 protein expression is also found in various B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma subtypes, such as mantle cell lymphoma, chronic lymphoid leukaemia, and, less typically, lymphoplasmacytic lymphomas and marginal zone lymphomas.
The CD5 protein is present on the long arm of the 11th chromosome in humans, and it is thus broadly distributed throughout the body. The protein is extracted via a straightforward CD5 test. CD5 antibody testing usually requires about 2ml of blood, and the same sample can be used for subsequent testing.
A CD5 test is available from Apollo 24|7, and you can acquire the results online from the comfort of your own home. Here are some of the most important things you can do with CD5 antibody testing reports:
