    A definition of the term "CD20" is presented. It refers to a membrane-embedded, non-glycosylated phosphoprotein that appears as the early pre-B cell matures into a late pre-B cell. The CD20 antigen is expressed on the surface of all mature B-lymphocytes, but is not present in secreting plasma cells.
