Independent expression of the surface markers 5′-nucleotidase and cALLA on leukemic cells


High levels of the ectozyme 5′-nucleotidase (5′-N) and the common ALL-antigen (cALLA) are coexpressed on leukemic blast cells in common ALL, in the lymphoid blast crisis of CML and also on the lymphoblastoid cell-line Nalm-1. Clinically this coexpression can help to subclassify leukemias and may be of diagnostic and prognostic significance. In an attempt to… (More)
