We report on the expression of the immunoglobulin-associated membrane protein B29 (recognized by CD79b) in 71 cases of immunologically typical (CD5+ CD23+) B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia using CB3-1 clone. Only 8 cases (11.2%) displayed the CD79b antigen. The expression of CD79b was also found to be related to atypical morphology and strong immunoglobulin density.
