CD14 is a glycoprotein expressed on mature monocytes, histiocytes/macrophages, Langerhans cells, neutrophils to a lesser degree, and facilitates phagocytic uptake. It stains normal macrophages/monocytes, granulocytes, Langerhans cells, dendritic cells, and B cells. It also distinguishes neoplasms of monocytic and Langerhans cell origin from other hematolymphoid neoplasms. Positive staining in diseased cells indicates B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemmia, follicular center cell lymphoma, diffuse large B cell lymphoma, and acute myeloid leukemia.
