CD2 is a surface antigen of the human T-lymphocyte lineage that is expressed on all peripheral blood T cells (summarized by Sewell et al., 1986 [PubMed 3490670]). It is one of the earliest T-cell markers, being present on more than 95% of thymocytes; it is also found on some natural killer cells but not on B lymphocytes. Monoclonal antibodies directed against CD2 inhibit the formation of rosettes with sheep erythrocytes, indicating that CD2 is the erythrocyte receptor or is closely associated with it.
Cd2 involved in several pathways and played different roles in them. We selected most pathways Cd2 participated on our site, such as Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs), Hematopoietic cell lineage, which may be useful for your reference. Also, other proteins which involved in the same pathway with Cd2 were listed below. Creative BioMart supplied nearly all the proteins listed, you can search them on our site.
Cd2 has several biochemical functions, for example, protein binding, protein homodimerization activity, receptor activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by Cd2 itself. We selected most functions Cd2 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with Cd2. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
Cd2 has direct interactions with proteins and molecules. Those interactions were detected by several methods such as yeast two hybrid, co-IP, pull-down and so on. We selected proteins and molecules interacted with Cd2 here. Most of them are supplied by our site. Hope this information will be useful for your research of Cd2.
