Role of carbonic anhydrase IX, α-methylacyl coenzyme a racemase, cytokeratin 7, and galectin-3 in the evaluation of renal neoplasms: a tissue microarray immunohistochemical study
Annals of Diagnostic Pathology, 08/17/2012
Bing Z et al. – Although both chRCC and oncocytoma were positive for CK7, but with a different patterns, CK7 staining in chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (chRCC) was diffuse, whereas it was sporadic in oncocytoma. Panel of carbonic anhydrase IX, galectin–3, CK7, and α–methylacyl coenzyme a racemase is sensitive and specific for the differential diagnosis of the renal epithelial tumors.
