The intermediate filament proteins of rhabdoid tumors of the kidney were investigated with a panel of monoclonal antibodies to different intermediate filament proteins. Rhabdoid tumor cells are decorated by an antivimentin antibody and by an antibody made against a 54-kilodalton (kd) cytokeratin from human hepatoma cells. The rhabdoid tumor cells fail to react with an antibody generated against keratin from stratum corneum or with an anti-200-kd neurofilament protein antibody. Cytoskeleton… CONTINUE READING
