CD2 in Human PBMCs. CD2 was detected in immersion fixed human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) using 10 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human CD2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB18561) for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Donkey Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

expressed on T, NK, B, and some antigen presenting cells. Human CD2
binds human CD58 on antigen-presenting cells to induce co-stimulating
signals in T cells.
