  • Langerin is a type II transmembrane C-type lectin associated with the formation of Birbeck granules in Langerhans cells. Langerin is a highly selective marker for Langerhans cells and the lesional cells of Langerhans cell histiocytosis. Although Langerin protein expression in Langerhans cell histiocytosis has been previously documented, the specificity of Langerin expression as determined by immunohistochemistry in the context of other histiocytic disorders has not been well established. In the… CONTINUE READING
