GeneAb™ Actin, Smooth Muscle

$120.00$250.00

Actin is part of the cytoskeletal system of all cell types. Smooth Muscle Actin is found in myofibroblasts and myoepithelium, but not in cardiac and skeletal muscles. Labelling of smooth muscle actin in concert with muscle specific actin staining can allow for differentiation between rhabdomyosarcoma and leiomyosarcoma, as Muscle specific actin is found in rhabdomyoblasts, while smooth muscle actin is found in leiomyosarcomas.

GeneAb™ Annexin A1

$90.00$240.00
Annexin A1 (ANXA1) is a membrane protein that plays a role in innate and adaptive immunity by controlling the biosynthesis of inflammation, prostaglandins, and leukotriene mediators. This target is overexpressed in 97% of all samples from patients with with hairy cell leukemia, and is absent in other B-cell lymphomas. High ANXA1 expression is frequently associated with advanced stage esophageal and esophagogastric junction adenocarcinoma, and is also linked to advanced and metastatic disease states.

GeneAb™ Arginase-1

$80.00$335.00

Arginase-1, encoded by the ARG1 gene, is a cytosolic metalloenzyme expressed predominantly in hepatocytes which plays a key role in the urea cycle by catalyzing the hydrolysis of arginine to ornithine and urea. Argininemia is an inherited autosomal recessive disorder characterized by a buildup of arginine and ammonia in the blood. Anti-Arginase-1 is highly specific for hepatocytes, and is therefore a sensitive and specific marker of benign and malignant hepatic tumors.

GeneAb™ BG8, Lewis y

$115.00$390.00

BG8 LewisY, also known as LewisY blood antigen or simply BG8, is a blood group antigen that has been identified in many studies as a potential marker for differentiation between pulmonary adenocarcinoma (PACA) and epithelioid mesothelioma (EM). It has been reported that sensitivity of non-mesothelial antigens for adenocarcinoma is organ-dependent. When attempting to differentiate epithelioid mesothelioma from adenocarcinoma, BG8 LewisY performed at a sensitivity of 98% in the breast cancer group, and 100% in the lung cancer group.

GeneAb™ BSEP

$145.00$670.00

Bile Salt Export Pump (BSEP) is a member of the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters, which mediates the transport of bile acid, taurocholate and other cholate conjugates across the hepatocyte canalicular membrane into the canaliculus. BSEP is associated with progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis type 2 (PFIC2) and benign recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis type 2 (BRIC2). PFIC2 caused by mutations in the BSEP gene increases the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma in early life.

GeneAb™ CA-125

$35.00$305.00
Annexin A1 (ANXA1) is a membrane protein that plays a role in innate and adaptive immunity by controlling the biosynthesis of inflammation, prostaglandins, and leukotriene mediators. This target is overexpressed in 97% of all samples from patients with with hairy cell leukemia, and is absent in other B-cell lymphomas. High ANXA1 expression is frequently associated with advanced stage esophageal and esophagogastric junction adenocarcinoma, and is also linked to advanced and metastatic disease states.

GeneAb™ CD138

$105.00$435.00

Cluster of differentiation 138 (CD138), also known as Syndecan-1, is a transmembrane glycoprotein present on the surface of B-cells during late stage differentiation. Anti-CD138 is used to differentiate marginal zone lymphoma from lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma. ALK Large B-Cell Lymphoma (LBCL) commonly stains positively for CD138, but not for CD20 and CD79a. Anti-CD138 reacts positively with HHV8-associated primary effusion lymphoma that lack B-cell markers. CD138 is also a useful marker for identifying and enumerating benign, reactive, or malignant plasma cells from the bone marrow biopsy samples.

GeneAb™ CD15/Leu-M1

$50.00$190.00

Cluster of differentiation 15 (CD15) is a carbohydrate adhesion molecule. Positive staining for CD15 and negative staining for leukocyte common antigen or other B- or T-cell lineage markers helps recognize Reed Sternberg cells (RSC) in Classical Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (CHL), and distinguishes it from Hodgkin-like neoplasms. CD15 does not stain mesotheliomas and is therefore most useful for distinguishing epithelial mesothelioma from adenocarcinoma.
