Identifies leukocyte common antigen (LCA), a family of cell surface proteins expressed at variable levels in all normal hematopoietic cells, with the exception of erythroid cells that have matured beyond the proerythroblasts stage. A variety of hematopoietic neoplasms show aberrant increases or decreases in the level of CD45 expression. Aberrant loss of CD45 is seen in a subset of precursor B-lymphoblastic leukemias, in the majority of multiple myelomas, and in nearly all cases of classical Hodgkin's lymphoma (on Reed-Sternberg cells and variants).
