Integral membrane glycoprotein that plays an essential role in the immune response and serves multiple functions in responses against both external and internal offenses. A majority of thymocytes and a subpopulation of mature T cells and NK cells express CD8a. It is a useful marker for distinguishing helper/inducer T-lymphocytes, and most peripheral T- cell lymphomas are CD4+/CD8-. Anaplastic large cell lymphoma is usually CD4+ and CD8-, and in T-lymphoblastic lymphoma/leukemia, CD4 and CD8 are often co-expressed. CD8 is also found in littoral cell angioma of the spleen.
