Neurone-specific enolase, chromogranin, CD56, immunoperoxidase, synaptophysin, epithelial membrane antigen, calcitonin, and bombesin stains may be useful to establish the diagnosis.
Immunohistochemically, these tumors show positivity for neuron specific enolase (NSE), vimentin, CD10, progesterone receptor (PR) and [beta] catenin, variable positivity for synaptophysin and cytokeratin and negativity for chromogranin4,8,11,12.
Several investigators have demonstrated expression of neuron-specific enolase in SPN.
The enolase superfamily (ENOSF), named after the enolase enzyme of glycolysis, is used as a model of protein superfamily evolution (Gerlt et al.
The immunohistochemical stains performed were Neuron Specific Enolase (NSE) (Dako,1:400), Chromogranin A (Dako, 1:5000), CD56 (NovoCas- tra,1:50), Neurofilament (Dako,1:400), S-100 (Dako, 1:1000), Synaptophysin (Biogenex, 1:400), Vimentin (Vim 3B4 Dako, 1:100), CD 99 (mic-2 12E7 Dako, Pre-diluted), Cytokeratin (clone AE1/AE3 Dako 1:50), Epithelial Membrane Antigen (EMA) (E29, Dako, 1:50), Cytokeratin 7 (OV-TL 12/30, Dako, 1:100), CD117 (c-kit - Dako, 1:100), Desmin (D33, Dako, 1:150), Cytokeratin CAM 5.
reported that pheochromocytomas are strongly reactive for chromogranin A and neuron specific enolase.
Other identified spots included gelsolin, vimentin, gamma enolase, ATP synthase and cytoskeletal protein.
Immunohistochemical staining was positive for neuronal/neuroendocrine markers, neuron-specific enolase (NSE, Figure 2(b)), vimentin (Figure 2(c)), synaptophysin (Figure 2(d)), and S-100 protein (Figure 2(e)).
Immunohistochemically, most of the tumour cells stain positively with CD 34 and vimentin, and are negative for neuron-specific enolase, HMB-45 and protein S-100.
Additional immunohistochemical analysis was performed with SMA, desmin, vimentin, c-kit, CD34, S100 and neuron specific enolase (NSE).
Microscopic examination is usually limited to HE staining, but specific immunohistochemical markers can be useful, such as Vimentin, Neuron Specific Enolase, and S-100 Protein.
