Pygopus 2 Antibody Immunohistochemistry on an FFPE Lung Neuroendocrine Tumor Tissue
|Intended Use||For In Vitro Diagnostic Use|
|Summary and Explanation|
Pygopus Family PHD Finger 2 (PYGO2) is a protein-coding gene associated with G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) and Wnt signaling pathways, chromatin binding and histone acetyltransferase regulator activity. Pygo2 as a Wnt signaling pathway component has been detected in multiple cancer types.
One study found that abnormal Pygopus 2 antibody expression was associated with poor differentiation and a high tumor, node, and metastases stage and poor prognosis in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients, therefore abnormal Pygo2 qntibody expression may be a marker for advanced NSCLC. Another study found that 59% of the patient tumor specimens exhibited positive Pygopus 2 antibody immunohistochemistry staining and increased intensity with the grade of malignancy, especially for WHO grade III and IV.
High-level expression has been reported in gliomas compared with normal brain tissues, which suggest an important role of Pygo2 in brain tumor progression. In a Colorectal Cancer study, the expression pattern of Pygo2 was evaluated by immunohistochemistry in tumor tissues and their normal margins, and found the expression of pygopus 2 antibody was detected in all tumor tissues. Furthermore, this expression was significantly higher in Colorectal Cancer samples than in normal tissues, and a significant association was found between Pygo2 protein expression in Colorectal Cancer and tumor cell metastasis to the lymph nodes. Pygo2 is also associated with Oligospermia.
