Test Description

LMO2 protein is expressed in normal human germinal-center (GC) and GC-derived lymphomas. In addition, it is also expressed at high levels in endothelial cells, spleen, hematopoietic precursors, and a significant proportion of acute lymphoblastic and myeloid leukemias. In diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), LMO2 protein expression is aligned with GC markers HGAL, CD10 and BCL6, indicating a potential role for LMO2 in the prognostic stratification of DLBCL patients. It is rarely expressed in mature T, natural killer (NK) and plasma cell neoplasms and is absent from non-hematolymphoid tissues, except for endothelial cells.

Specimen Requirements
  • A formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue block is preferred specimen type
    or
  • 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.
