|Detection of CD7 in Human Blood Lymphocytes by Flow Cytometry. Human peripheral blood lymphocytes were stained with Mouse Anti-Human CD3 epsilon APC‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB100A) and either (A) Mouse Anti-Human CD7 PE‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB7579P) or (B) Mouse IgG2B Phycoerythrin Isotype Control (Catalog # IC0041P).

CD7 (Cluster of Differentiation Antigen 7; also Leu-9, TP41 and GP40) is a 40-44 kDa member of the Ig-superfamily of proteins. It shows restricted expression, being found on fetal thymocytes, CD34+ myeloid and lymphoid progenitor cells, memory CLA- CD45RA+ T cells, and CD56+ IFN-gamma secreting NK cells. CD7 binds to both SECTM1/K12 and galectin-1, and when bound to the latter, initiates complex formation with CD43 in cis. Activation of CD7 may result in either cell proliferation or apoptosis, suggesting a context-dependent signaling mechanism. Mature human CD7 is a 215 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane glycoprotein. It contains a 155 aa extracellular region (aa 26-180) that shows one V-type Ig-like domain (aa 26-130), and a 39 aa C-terminal cytoplasmic domain. There is one potential alternative splice variant that contains a 79 aa substitution for aa 133-240. Over aa 26-180, human CD7 shares only 43% aa sequence identity with mouse CD7.
