CD31CD31 is a 130kDa transmembrane glycoprotein that is shared by vascular lining cells, megakaryocytes and platelets. This marker is highly restricted to endothelial neoplasms among all tumors of the soft tissue and its sensitivity is excellent. 100% of angiosarcomas and hemangiomas are CD31 positive. However, Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS) is labeled more consistently by CD34 than by CD31. CD31 has also been used as a prognostic marker measuring tumor angiogenesis. CD31 also stains histiocytes. Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
cMETThe cMET tyrosine kinase receptor, normally expressed by epithelial cells, is overexpressed and amplified in a variety of human tumors, including non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC). High levels of intratumor cMET expression have been associated with a more aggressive biology and a worse prognosis in NSCLC. Engelman et al. reported that cMET amplification induced resistance to gefitinib in a gefitinib-sensitive lung cancer cell line. Moreover, cMET inhibition with a cMET tyrosine kinase inhibitor (PHA-665,752) restored gefitinib sensitivity. Immunohistochemistry (IHC)

Molecular
FSHFollicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is a pituitary hormone involved in the maturation of ovarian follicles and estrogen secretion in females. In the pituitary gland, FSH is produced by gonadotrophs. In males, FSH stimulates the secretion of testosterone. This antibody is used in the identification of FSH in pituitary adenomas. Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
GFAPGlial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP) is the major protein found in astrocytes and its expression is evidence of astroglial origin and differentiation. Gliomas are the most common cerebral neoplasm in adults and include astrocytomas, oligodendrogliomas and glioblastomas. It can also be demonstrated in ependymal cells, ependymomas, subependyomas, glioblastomas, mixed central nervous system neoplasms and gangliomas. It is detected in immature but not mature oligodendrocytes and neurons. Anti-GFAP antibodies do not cross-react with neurons, fibroblasts or muscle cells. Anti-GFAP antibodies are useful in differentiating primary gliomas from metastatic lesions in the brain and for documenting astrocytic differentiation in tumors outside the central nervous system. Immunohistochemistry (IHC)

NeoARRAY™ SNP/Cytogenetic Profile

The NeoARRAY SNP/Cytogenetic Profile is available for hematological, solid tumor, and pregnancy loss indications. With the best genome-wide coverage available, this test employs an enhanced SNP microarray with over 2.6 million SNP and non-polymorphic markers for detection of copy number variants (deletions, duplications, and amplifications) and loss of heterozygosity or uniparental disomy (LOH or UPD) in any chromosome. Sensitivity and specificity for detection of copy number variants >400 kb is >99%. Testing may not reliably detect abnormalities present in less than 20% of the cells tested. Balanced rearrangements, including translocations and inversions, are not detectable by this method. Clients may request NeoARRAY on POC as the sole test, or they may order POC cytogenetics with reflex to NeoARRAY if the POC culture fails or if cytogenetic results are normal. For reflex orders, if there is no cell attachment or growth after 14 days in culture, a cytogenetics failure report will be issued and NeoARRAY will be performed. If there is limited cell attachment after 14 days in culture, NeoGenomics will contact the client for instructions. When array testing is not performed, a fee will be charged for DNA extraction (which is performed upon specimen receipt).

NeuNNeuN is a sensitive and specific marker of neuronal differentiation in brain tumors. Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
NSE (Neuron Specific Enolase)In normal tissue, most neurons and their axonal and dendritic processes stain strongly positive for Neuron Specific Enolase (NSE), with the exception of Purkinje cells. Schwann cells, cells of the adrenal medulla, and paraganglia also contain NSE. Endocrine cells of the skin (Merkel cells), respiratory and GI tract epithelium, pituitary parathyroid, and pancreatic islets and C cells of thyroid all stain positively for NSE. NSE is expressed in ganglioneuromas, neuroblastomas, Schwannomas and malignant melanomas. It is also present in pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas. Carcinoids, medullary thyroid carcinomas, pituitary adenomas and endocrine tumors of the pancreas and GI tract all show positive immunoreactivity for NSE. NSE is found in neuroendocrine carcinoma of the skin (Merkel cell tumor) and small cell carcinoma of the lung. Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
Olig2Olig2, a transcription factor, is involved in oligodendroglial specification. Olig2 expression has been reported in most glial tumors, such as oligodendrogliomas and astrocytomas. Olig2 is negative in the non-glial tumors including neuroepithelial tumors, ependymomas, subependymomas,medulloblastomas, and nonneuroepithelial tumors, such as CNS lymphomas, meningiomas, schwannomas, atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor, and haemangioblastomas. Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
p21p21 is a cyclin dependent protein kinase inhibitor and is a member of a family of proteins that functions to slow down cell division. p21 is found in t cells as they transitions from G1 phase to S phase. Low nuclear expression of p21 has been associated with poor prognosis in colon and prostate carcinomas. Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
p53The product of the p53 gene is a nuclear phosphoprotein that regulates cell proliferation. Excess accumulation of the mutant p53 gene product results in inactivation of its tumor suppressor function and cellular transformation. Overexpression of mutant p53 gene has also been associated with high proliferative rates and poor prognosis in breast, colon, lung, and brain cancer, as well as in some leukemias and lymphomas.

TauTau is important in establishing and maintaining neuronal morphology and is a major component of the neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) characteristic of an Alzheimer's diseased brain. Tau is also expressed in epithelial cells, including breast tissue. Down-regulation of Tau expression in breast cancer cells increases sensitivity to paclitaxel. Tau may be used as a marker to select patients for paclitaxel therapy. High Tau expression in estrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancer indicates an endocrine-sensitive but chemotherapy-resistant disease. In contrast, low Tau expression identifies a subset of ER-positive cancers that have poor prognosis with tamoxifen alone and may benefit from taxane-containing hemotherapy. Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
