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)
p27p27 (KIP1) belongs to the family of cell cycle regulators that cause cell cycle arrest in G1 phase. p27 promotes apoptosis, plays a role in terminal differentiation of some tissues and mediates chemosensitivity in solid tumors. Decreased p27 KIP1 expression in tumors is associated with a more aggressive tumor phenotype such as poor histologic grade, presence of lymphovascular invasion and higher growth fraction. These findings have been validated on various cancers such as breast, colon, esophagus, stomach, lung and prostate. Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
p40p40 antibody recognizes ΔNp63—a p63 isoform. It is equivalent to p63 in sensitivity for squamous cell carcinoma, but it is markedly superior to p63 in specificity, which eliminates a potential pitfall of misinterpreting a p63-positive adenocarcinoma as squamous cell carcinoma. These findings strongly support the routine use of p40 for the diagnosis of pulmonary squamous cell carcinoma. 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. Immunohistochemistry (IHC)
pHistone H3 (PHH3)Phosphohistone H3 (PHH3) is a marker of cells in the late G2-M phase of the cell cycle.
