Description: CD9 antigen is a glycoprotein expressed
on the surface of developing B lymphocytes, platelets, monocytes,
eosinophils, basophil, stimulated T lymphocytes and by neurons and
glial cells in the peripheral nervous system. Protein exists in
three forms, and is known to carry covalently linked fatty acids.
It is involved in platelet activation, aggregation, in cell
adhesion, cell motility and tumor metastasis. It regulates
paranodal junction formation, and is also required for gamete
