Differential antigens or clusters of differentiation (CD antigens) are molecules on the surface of cells, which are bound with immunity system, having different functions. Two important diagnostic tools - cell fusion techniques and flow cytometry - helped to develope the knowledge about these antigens. Knowledge of CD antigens and subpopulations of animal leukocytes is employed for the study of diseases' pathogenesis.
