Historical Background

CD47 was first identified in 1987 as an antigen that is missing in red blood cells of patients with Rhesus (Rh)-null hemolytic anemia (see the following reviews for CD47 source references unless otherwise cited: Rogers et al. 2012; Soto-Pantoja et al. 2015; Soto-Pantoja et al. 2013). Loss of CD47 is not the primary cause of this disease, but CD47 closely associates with the Rh complex on red blood cells. Independently, the same protein was identified as an antigen, OA3, that is overexpressed in ovarian carcinoma and as a protein that copurified with certain integrins and named integrin-associated protein (IAP). IAP and OA3 were shown in 1994 to be identical to CD47. CD47 is a type I integral membrane protein with an extracellular immunoglobulin variable (IgV)-like domain, five membrane-spanning segments, and a short alternatively spliced...
