The CD5 antigen or T1, is a 67 kDa single chain glycoprotein expressed on normal and malignant T cells and by two B-cell neoplasms: lymphocytic leukemia and mantle cell lymphoma. It is found in high density on medullary thymocytes and in low density on cortical thymocytes. CD5 antigen is expressed in 95% of thymocytes and 72% of peripheral blood lymphocytes. In tumors, CD5 is expressed on T-cell malignancies, B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)/small lymphocytic lymphoma (SLL), and mantle-cell lymphoma. It is a useful diagnostic tool for these tumors. In addition, anti-CD5 is helpful in diagnosis of thymic carcinoma (CD5 positive). Anti-CD5 antibody is a T-cell associated marker that is also expressed
