bcl-2 (Clone 124)

Methodology: IHC

Clinical Significance:
Identifies a cytoplasmic/mitochondrial protein that inhibits apoptosis. Bcl-2 is also overexpressed as a result of the t(14;18) in the majority of follicular lymphomas, and in a significant minority of diffuse large B cell lymphomas of germinal center phenotype. Bcl-2 expression in other B cell neoplasms is not associated with the t(14;18). Bcl-2 expression has been observed in the following lymphomas: DLBCL, FL, small lymphocytic (SLL), mantle cell (MCL), marginal zone (MZL), anaplastic large cell (ALCL) and T-cell (TCL). Synovial sarcomas and some muscle-derived tumors also have been shown to express Bcl-2. Subcellular Localization: Cytoplasmic

Organ:

Disease State: Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (Systemic or Cutaneous)
