CD18

a type I transmembrane protein found on lymphocytes, neutrophils, monocytes, macrophages, some B cells, dendritic cells, and natural killer cells that appears active in signal transduction; expressed in some patients with B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia, most with acute nonlymphocytic leukemia, and some with hairy cell leukemia.

CD18

This term is generally preferred by immunologists; the preferred HUGO symbol for the gene is ITGB2, see there.
