Specific for CD56
CD56, also known as neural cell adhesion molecule (N-CAM), is a single transmembrane glycoprotein that is considered to be a pan NK cell marker. CD56 is expressed on NK cells, NK-T cells, the brain (cerebellum and cortex), at neuromuscular junctions, certain large granular lymphocyte (LGL) leukemias, small-cell lung carcinomas, neuronal derived tumors, myelomas, and myeloid leukemias. CD56 plays a role in cell adhesion via binding to itself (described as homophilic adhesion) or heparan sulfate (described as heterophilic adhesion). The CD56 mouse monoclonal antibody (mAb) recognizes human CD56.
