Alternate Test Names:
Myeloid cell Nuclear Differentiation Antigen
Although the expression of MNDA was initially thought to be restricted to the myelomonocytic lineage, several studies have shown the expression of this protein by normal and neoplastic B lymphocytes. MNDA has been shown to be expressed in splenic marginal zone lymphomas, mantle cell lymphomas, nodal marginal zone lymphomas and hairy cell leukemia.
MNDA (clone 253A) will be used as part of a larger IHC panel to help distinguish marginal zone B cell lymphoma (MZL) from follicle center-derived B cell lymphoma, particularly CD10-negative FL.
