Mouse anti Human CD15 antibody, clone MEM-158
recognizes the human CD15 cell surface antigen, also known as Lewis X , stage-specfic embryonic antigen-1 or SSEA-1.
CD15 is a carbohydrate antigen, predominately expressed by peripheral blood granulocytes (Brackman et al.1995
) but also on a variety of other normal cells and many tumors (Ohana-Malka et al. 2003
). Expression of CD15 is widely used as a diagnostic indicator of Hodgkin's disease where acquisition of a sialyl group by CD15 is indicative of progression to a more disemminated form of the disease and poor prognosis (Benharroch et al. 2000
