We describe two mouse mAb recognizing the putative chicken homologue of mammalian CD2 Ag and provide evidence for both structural and functional conservation between the avian and mammalian CD2 molecules. The antibodies were T cell-specific and immunoprecipitated a single diffuse band of Mr 40,000 from lysates of surface-labeled chicken thymocytes and… CONTINUE READING
