Clinical Significance:
CD20 is a cell surface-associated protein expressed during the middle to later stages of B cell maturation in the bone marrow, and on all normal mature B cells. CD20 ceases to be expressed at the terminal differentiation of B cells to plasma cells. CD20 is expressed on the great majority of mature B cell neoplasms, and on a significant subset of immature B cell neoplasms, but only rarely on plasmacytic neoplasms. CD20 is the target of the therapeutic antibody known as Rituxan. Subcellular Localization: Membranous

Organ: Blood/Bone Marrow
