PAX5

What is PAX5? PAX5 (Paired box protein 5) is a type of protein called a transcription factor that plays an important role in the development and function of B cells, a type of white blood cells (WBCs) that are part of the body’s immune system. It is also known as BSAP (B-cell-specific activator protein) due …

CD19

CD19 is a protein primarily expressed on the surface of B cells, a type of white blood cell that plays a key role in the immune system’s defense against infections. This protein is expressed throughout the entire B cell development process, from pre-B cells to mature B cells where it is involved in the regulation …

B cells

B cells (also called B lymphocytes) are a type of white blood cell and a part of the immune system. These cells contribute to a process called the adaptive immune response that is important for protecting the body against infections. Specifically, these cells contribute to humoral immunity by producing immunoglobulin (antibodies) that recognize and stick to …

CD5

CD5 is a specialized type of protein normally found on the surface of immune cells where it is involved in modulating signal transduction pathways. It plays a significant role in regulating immune responses and maintaining the balance between activating and inhibiting signals within the immune system. What does CD5 do? Regulates T-cell activation: CD5 is …

CD20

CD20 is a protein primarily expressed on the surface of B cells, a type of white blood cell that plays a key role in the immune system’s defense against infections. This protein is expressed throughout the entire B cell development process, from pre-B cells to mature B cells, but is not present on plasma cells, …
