Identifies a family of membrane glycoproteins expressed at variable levels in hematopoietic cells (human leukocytes, including lymphocytes, monocytes, and eosinophils) but is absent on normal and malignant non-hematopoietic tissues. Aberrant loss of CD45 is seen in a subset of precursor B-lymphoblastic leukemias, the majority of multiple myelomas, and in nearly all cases of classical Hodgkin's lymphoma on Reed-Sternberg cells and variants.
