Glycophorin A (sialoglycoprotein alpha) is one of two transmembrane proteins exposed on the outer surface of normal human erythrocytes. This monoclonal antibody reacts with an epitope located on the extracellular domain of glycophorin A and does not cross-react with glycophorin D (glycophorin delta). In normal human erythrocytes, glycophorin A is expressed during all stages of differentiation, from the normoblast to the mature erythrocyte. Once maximally expressed, the quantity of glycophorin A in each red blood cell remains constant. Glycophorin A has also been located in the blast cells of cases of erythroleukemia. Cases of acute lymphoblastic and myeloblastic leukemia are not reactive.
