Rat anti Human AID antibody, clone EK2-5G9 recognizes human Single-stranded DNA cytosine deaminase, also known as Activation-induced cytidine deaminase or Cytidine aminohydrolase. AID is a 198 amino acid ~24 kDa RNA-editing enzyme essential for the initiation of immunoglobulin class switch recombination, somatic hypermutation and gene conversion.

AID is selectively expressed by germinal centre B cells and B cell-derived lymphomas (Basso et al. 2012). Mutation in the AICDA gene is responsible for the autosomal recessive condition Immunodeficiency with hyper-IgM 2 (HIGM2) A rare immunodeficiency syndrome characterized by normal or elevated serum IgM levels with absence of IgG, IgA, and IgE resulting in extreme susceptibility to bacterial infection.
