5A6 specifically reacts with the 85 kD b-chain of human LRP/a2MR which is expressed in a restricted spectrum of cell types (for a recent review cf. Herz & Strickland). A strong immunohistochemical reaction is seen in hepatocytes, tissue macrophages, subsets of neurones and astrocytes in the central nervous system, fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells, and monocyte-derived foam cells in atherosclerotic lesions in the arterial wall. The antibody can also be used for the characterization of a subset of myelo-monocytic subtypes of chronic and acute leukemia (CD 91). Neutralizing effects of 5A6 have also been reported (Basu et al., 2001). Basu S, Binder RJ, Ramalingam T, Srivastave PK: CD91 is a common receptor for heat shock proteins gp96, hsp90, hsp 70, and calreticulin. Immunity 14, 303-313 (2001)
