CD53, also known as TSPAN25, is a 35 kDa‑40 kDa cell surface and endosomal membrane glycoprotein that belongs to the 4 TM tetraspanin superfamily of molecules. CD53 is widely expressed on hematopoietic cells, including eosinophils, neutrophils, mast cells, CD16+ proinflammatory monocytes, NK cells T cells, macrophages, splenic B cells and immature dendritic cells. Ligation of CD53 promotes cell proliferation and survival, as well as homotypic cell‑cell adhesion. On the cell membrane, CD53 associates with other tetraspanins, MHC class II molecules, and alpha 3 and alpha 4 integrins. Human CD53 shares 71% aa sequence identity with mouse and CD53 in the extracellular domains.
