CD81 (TAPA1), a member of the tetraspanin family, is virtually expressed on all nucleated cells, but in particular on germinal center B cells. CD81 forms complexes with other tetraspanin proteins, integrins and co-receptors. In muscles, CD81 promotes cell fusion and myotube maintenance. CD81 has been also identified as a receptor for the hepatitis C virus.
