What is the CD20 Flow Cytometry test?
This CD20 is a CD marker—a molecule on the cell surface that can be used to identify and type a particular cell in the body.
When is the CD20 Flow Cytometry test recommended?
It is recommended in:Confirming the complete absence of B cells in suspected primary humoral immunodeficiency using both CD19 and CD20 markers.CD20 expression in peripheral T-cell lymphomas is diagnosed in lymph nodes, skin lesions, mediastinal masses, adrenal masses, gastric lesions, and pancreatic masses.
What does it measure?
CD20 is a protein (cluster of differentiating 20) that is expressed on the surface of B cells, starting at the pre-B cell stage and also on mature B cells in the bone marrow and in the periphery. This CD20 is generally co-expressed on B cells with CD19, another B-cell differentiation marker. CD20 appears to play the main role in B-cell development, differentiation, B-cell receptor (BCR) signaling, and cell-cycle initiation events.CD20 is not expressed in hematopoietic stem cells, pro-B cells, or normal plasma cells that express CD20. This protein is found on B cells (a type of white blood cell (WBC)). It may be found at higher-than-normal levels in patients with certain types of B-cell lymphomas and leukemias. Analyzing the amount of CD20 antigen on blood cells may help to diagnose cancer or plan cancer treatment. The CD20 antigen is a type of tumor marker. It is also called CD20.
