BRG1 (SMARCA4) is involved in chromatin remodeling, which regulates the binding of transcription factors to DNA. Immunhistochemical loss of expression of BRG-1 (SMARCA4) is associated with the diagnosis of small cell carcinoma of ovary, hypercalcemic type (SCCOHT).
Staining pattern: Nuclear
- A formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue block is preferred specimen type
