The unique markers for each cell type are bolded, if important.

Some CD molecules have other names as well:

CD16 = FcγR III

CD21 = Complement receptor 2 (CR2)

CD23 = FcεR II

CD25 = IL-2 receptor

CD32 = FcγR II

CD35 = Complement receptor 1 (CR1)

CD62L = L-selectin

CD64 = FcγR I

CD80 = B7.1

CD86 = B7.2

CD152 = CTLA-4

CD154 = CD40L
