TFE3 - rabbit polyclonalBSB 2272-BSB 2278
Xp11 translocation renal cell carcinomas (RCC) are a recently recognized subset of RCC, characterized by chromosome translocations involving the Xp11.2 break point and resulting in gene fusions involving the TFE3 transcription factor gene that maps to this locus. Xp11 translocation RCC represents the most common type of RCC in children, but is less frequent on a percentage basis in adults. Morphologically, these neoplasms frequently show papillary architecture and clear cytoplasm, and frequently have associated psammoma bodies. Immunohistochemically, these neoplasms under-express epithelial markers such anti-cytokeratin and anti-epithelial membrane antigen (anti-EMA) compared with typical adult type RCC. The most sensitive and specific immunohistochemical marker for the Xp11 translocation RCC is nuclear labeling of TFE3 protein, which reflects over-expression of the resulting fusion proteins relative to native TFE3. Alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS) is an uncommon soft tissue sarcoma of uncertain differentiation. It is often present in the extremities of younger presents.
