Can cytoplasmic nucleophosmin be detected by immunocytochemical staining of cell smears in acute myeloid leukemia?


Mutations in the C-terminal region of nucleophosmin in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) result in aberrant cytoplasmic nucleophosmin (cNPM) in leukemic blast cells which is detectable by immunocytochemistry in bone marrow trephine (BMT) biopsy sections. We tested whether cNPM is detectable by immunocytochemistry in air-dried smears of AML with nucleophosmin1… (More)
