CD13 plays roles in peptide metabolism (brush border membranes of small intestine, renal proximal tubules, and placenta), cell growth and differentiation, and phagocytosis. CD13 is normally expressed on myeloid lineage cells, including granuloctyes and monocytes. It is also expressed on nonhematolymphoid cells including endothelial cells and fibroblasts, and present in a soluble form in plasma. This immunostain may be useful as a marker of myeloid lineage in acute leukemias.
