CD3 pin



Methodology: IHC

Clinical Significance:
CD3 is a multimeric cell surface-associated protein expressed in T cells in association with the T cell antigen receptor. Cell surface CD3 begins to be expressed during T cell development in the thymus, and is expressed throughout later T cell maturation. CD3 is aberrantly decreased in a subset of T cell neoplasms. NK cells do not express surface CD3, but do express the epsilon chain of CD3 in the cytoplasm. Subcellular Localization: Membranous


Disease State: Angioimmunoblastic T Cell Lymphoma
