CD99

CD99 antigen (Cluster of differentiation 99), also known as MIC2 or single-chain type-1 glycoprotein, is a heavily O-glycosylated transmembrane protein that is encoded by the CD99 gene in humans.

The protein has a mass of 32 kD. Unusually for a gene present on the X chromosome, the CD99 gene does not undergo X inactivation, and it was the first such pseudoautosomal gene to be discovered in humans.

An immunohistochemical study yielded positive results for CD34, CD99, and Bcl-2 and negative results for EMA, GFAP, and S100 in two Cases of Primary Intracranial Solitary Fibrous Tumor 1).
