Technical Data
CD15 (Alpha-(1,3)-fucosyltransferase, ELAM-1 Ligand Fucosyltransferase, ELFT, FCT3A, Fucosyltransferase 4, FUT4, Fucosyltransferase IV, Fuc-TIV, FucT-IV, FUTIV, Galactoside 3-L-fucosyltransferase, LeX, SSEA-1)
CD15 is found on most circulating granulocytes and some monocytes, but is absent from normal lymphocytes. It has been reported to be present on Reed- Sternberg cells of Hodgkin’s disease, T cell lymphomas and some leukaemias. This antibody will help detect CD15 expression on normal and neoplastic cells.

Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
