TrfR, a primitive membrane protein was demonstrated by immunohistochemistry in 87,6% of 105 cases of breast carcinoma, predominantly on the cell surface and in a strong and rather uniform pattern. Sporadic staining in a patchy fashion was observed. No difference between individual tumour types was seen, neither in cytomorphological staining pattern nor in staining intensity. Exceptionally, mucoid carcinomas showed weaker intensity for receptor expression. Because of the heterogenous expression… CONTINUE READING
