Table 3 CD39 expression on sub-types of normal lymphocytes

From: CD39 activity correlates with stage and inhibits platelet reactivity in chronic lymphocytic leukemia

Lymphocyte sub-type Average % CD39+ cells (range) Mean expression of CD39 per cell
Total normal lymphocytes 20* (14–23) 2463** (1800–3000)
T-lymphocytes (CD3+) 8.2* (1.2–15) 1717* (900–2700)
CD4+ 9.1* (1.8–16) 1942* (1300–2700)
CD8+ 7.9* (0.7–22) 949*,† (400–1500)
B-lymphocytes (CD19+) 95 (87–99) 3640 (2100–5000)
Malignant B-lymphocytes 93 (61–100) 3480 (600–9000)
  1. CD39 expression on normal lymphocytes. Results from FACS analysis of blood from 10 normal volunteers. Percentage CD39 expression is expressed as double positive cells as a percentage of the subtype of cells.
  2. *p < 0.00001 for 2 tailed T-test versus normal B-lymphocytes
  3. **p < 0.001 for 2 tailed T-test versus normal B-lymphocytes
  4. p < 0.0001 for 2-tailed T-test versus CD4+ lymphocytes
