TCL1

Alternate Test Names:
TCL1A; p14TCL1; TCL-1

Methodology: IHC

Clinical Significance:
Identifies a protein present in both the cytoplasm and nucleus of the following: immature normal T-cells; T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia (in which TCL-1 overexpression due to chromosomal translocation is the key pathogenetic event); a variety of B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders including CLL/SLL; and blastic plasmacytoid dendritic cell neoplasms. TCL-1 protein function has been studied predominately in T-cells, in which it has been demonstrated to bind to the AKT protooncogene and to enhance both AKT enzymatic activity and translocation from cytoplasm to nucleus.
