CD1a

Methodology: IHC

Clinical Significance:
CD1a is a cell surface-associated protein expressed at the "dual-positive" stage of T cell development, which is the stage at which CD4 and CD8 are coexpressed on immature T cells in the thymus. CD1a is expressed on a subset of precursor T lymphoblastic leukemias/lymphomas corresponding to this stage of T cell development. CD1a is also expressed on the great majority of normal and neoplastic Langerhans cells.
