Target Details

  • Target: Lewis X (CD15)
  • Molecular weight: 83 kDa
  • Target background: Lewis X (CD15) is a branched pentasaccharide found on glycolipids, glycoproteins and proteoglycans of cells of gastric mucosa, nervous system, neutrophils, eosinophils, and monocytes. Lewis X is distributed abnormally in myeloid leukaemia's and is commonly used in the diagnosis of Hodgkin's disease. Lewis X is believed to enhance cell adhesion, either directly or by promoting integrin activation. Cells with high surface expression of Lewis X antigen, display strong self-aggregation, based on calcium-dependent Lewis X-Lewis X interaction. Anti-Lewis X (29) is useful for leukaemia typing and the purification of stem cells.
