The CD45 family of high molecular weight cell surface glycoproteins is abundantly expressed by virtually all hematopoietic cells. CD45 molecules exist as multiple isoforms whose extracellular portions vary in protein structure and carbohydrate content but whose intracellular portions are highly conserved and possess tyrosine phosphatase activity. In this review we summarize current studies describing CD45 isoform expression on peripheral and thymic lymphocytes. Further, we analyze changes in CD45 isoform expression by selective populations of activated B cells.
