BCL-10 is an N-terminal CARD (Caspase Recruitment Domain) containing protein that is involved in the adaptive immune response. It is also a substrate for MALT1. Mutations in the gene can lead to lymphoma, mucosa-associated lymphoid type. It is useful in the assessment of pancreatic tumors to distinguish acinar cell carcinoma from primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET), solid pseudopapillary tumor (SPT) and pancreatic blastoma (PB).
