Literature associating CD58 and dendritic cell thymoma
Lymphocyte function-associated antigen 3; Ligand of the T-lymphocyte CD2 glycoprotein. This interaction is important in mediating thymocyte interactions with thymic epithelial cells, antigen-independent and -dependent interactions of T-lymphocytes with target cells and antigen- presenting cells and the T-lymphocyte rosetting with erythrocytes. In addition, the LFA-3/CD2 interaction may prime response by both the CD2+ and LFA-3+ cells.
Synonyms: CD58, CD58p, hCD58, B1AMW1, H0YDI1 ...
