Granzyme B Antibody Immunohistochemistry on an FFPE Spleen Tissue
|Intended Use||For In Vitro Diagnostic Use|
|Summary and Explanation|
Granzymes are exogenous serine proteases that are released by cytoplasmic granules within cytotoxic T-cells and natural killer cells. Their purpose is to induce apoptosis within virus-infected cells, thus destroying them.
Granzyme B antibody has been useful in diagnosing Natural Killer/T-cell Lymphoma, as well as Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma. High percentages of cytotoxic T-cells have been shown to be an unfavorable prognostic indicator in Hodgkin’s Disease.
