In the myelogram, granulocyte derived cell line dominated in the bone marrow, while the activity of the erythroblast and lymphocyte cell line was slightly reduced.
(52) Erythroblast transformation-specific-related gene (ERG) rearrangement also occurs with higher frequency in IDC-P than in PIN.
Similarly molecular pathogenetic studies have always been hampered by the fact that the abnormality resides in the dividing and differentiating erythroblast which is difficult to obtain pure and in large numbers, and in which many levels of metabolic control must coexist.
In view of immunohistochemistry, it expressed positive endothelial markers CD31 and erythroblast transformation-specific (ETS)-related gene (ERG) oncoprotein [Figure 1], also corresponding to angiosarcoma, but negative for calretinin, actin, desmin, CD68, human melanoma black 45, S-100, and CK.
Immunohistochemical assays from cluster of differentiation 31, cluster of differentiation 34, factor 13a, friend leukemia integration-1 transcription factor and erythroblast transformation-specific-related gene were positive consistent with vascular phenotype and denying prostatic carcinoma.
The results of immunostaining were as follows: pan-cytokeratin (-), CAM5.2 (-), epithelial membrane antigen (-), thyroid transcription factor-1 (-), calretinin (-), D2-40 (-), cluster of differentiation (CD)138 (+, focal), smooth muscle actin (+), HHF-35 (+), h-caldesmon (+/-), desmin (-), CD34 (-), CD31 (+/-), erythroblast transformation-specific related gene (+), S100 (-), human melanoma black 45 (-), and melan A (-).

However, it is important that marginal results in the induction of MN be taken with reservation, since there is evidence that compound-related disturbances in rodent physiology, such as body temperature and erythroblast toxicity, can also modify MN frequencies and increase erythropoiesis by stimulating cell division in bone marrow and peripheral blood [39].
