CD10, also known as Common Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia Antigen (CALLA), is expressed in early lymphoid progenitors and normal germinal center cells. It is almost always present on the surface of precursor B-lymphoblastic and Burkitt lymphomas and much less frequently on precursor T-lymphoblastic leukemia-lymphoma. Many follicular lymphoma and some diffuse large B-cell lymphomas, along with multiple myeloma are positive. CD10 is also present on breast myoepithelial cells, bile canaliculi, fibroblasts and with especially high expression on the brush border of kidney and gut epithelial cells. CD10 is also a good marker of endometrial stomal sarcoma.
- A formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue block is preferred specimen type
- One (1) unbaked, unstained slide for H&E staining (required) and two to three (2-3) positively charged unstained slides (all cut at 4-5 microns) for each test/antibody ordered
- Block and slide identifiers should be clearly written and match exactly with the specimen ID and specimen labeling as noted on the requisition.
Use cold pack for transport. Make sure cold pack is not in direct contact with specimen.
