CDX2 RMab - Mouse MRQ-26BSB 6057-BSB 6063
CDX2 is a caudal-type homeobox gene that encodes an intestine-specific transcription factor expressed early in intestinal development and that may be involved in the regulation of proliferation and differentiation of intestinal epithelial cells. It is expressed in the nuclei of epithelial cells throughout the intestine, from duodenum to rectum. The CDX2 protein is expressed in Primary and Metastatic Colorectal Carcinomas and has also been demon-strated in the intestinal metaplasia of the stomach and intestinal-type gastric cancer. It is not expressed in the normal gastric mucosa. Loss of CDX2 protein expression has been correlated with loss of differentiation in colorectal cancers. Anti-CDX2 antibody has been useful in distinguishing the gastrointestinal origin of Metastatic Adenocarcinomas and carcinoids. Studies have shown that CDX2 is a superior marker compared to CK20. A high percentage of Mucinous Carcinomas of the Ovary also stain positively with this antibody, as well as Carcinomas from the upper gastrointestinal tract.
