CD5 is a cell surface-associated protein expressed in mature and immature T cells, but not in NK cells. CD5 is aberrantly decreased in a subset of T cell neoplasms. CD5 shows characteristic aberrant expression by two B cell neoplasms, chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma and mantle cell lymphoma, although a small number of other B cell neoplasms can show low-level coexpression of CD5.
