General description

Immunohistochemical methods have localized chromogranin in a wide variety of endocrine tissues including the pituitary, pancreas, hypothalamus, thymus, thyroid, intestine, and parathyroid. Neuroendocrine cells exhibit a fine granular immunoreactivity to chromogranin. It is generally accepted that the co-expression of certain keratins and chromogranin mean neuroendocrine lineage. The presence of strong chromogranin staining and absence of keratin staining should raise the possibility of paraganglioma. The co-expression of chromogranin and NSE is typical of neuroendocrine neoplasms. Most pituitary adenomas and prolactinomas readily express chromogranin.







Chromogranin A Positive Control Slides, Product No. 238S, are available for immunohistochemistry (formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections).

Chromogranin A is the major soluble protein co-stored and co-released with catecholamines from catecholamine storage vesicles of adrenal medulla and sympathetic nerve. We recently described a widespread distribution of chromogranin, by radioimmunoassay, in all polypeptide hormone producing tissues. To define...

Although Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) exhibits specific clinical and histologic features, differentiation from other cutaneous neoplasms, such as lymphoma, metastatic oat cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma (MM), may sometimes be difficult. The aim of our study was to immunohistochemically differentiate...

The aim of the study was to determine if, by means of tyramide signal amplification (TSA), the presence of chromogranin A (CgA)-positive tumour cells could be demonstrated in breast cancer cases found to be negative by conventional immunohistochemical staining. Sections...

Neuroendocrine cells are often disclosed in human gastric adenocarcinomas and may be recognised by their immunoreactivity towards chromogranin A. However, in dedifferentiated neuroendocrine tumour cells, the chromogranin A content may be reduced making it difficult to detect with conventional immunohistochemical...

An antibody (LK2H10) to chromogranin A has been recommended for use in ultrastructural identification of neuroendocrine secretory granules. Previous studies have demonstrated immunoreactive chromogranin A in specimens prepared for electron microscopy by glutaraldehyde fixation only. In this study, the effect...
