Anti-T-bet CE/IVD for IHC - Hematopathology
T-box transcription factor TBX21, also known as T-bet, is a member of the T-box family of transcription factors. T-bet is a transcription factor present in CD4+ T-cells. Anti-T-bet stains mature T-lymphocytes, but is scarcely present in T helper cells. Nuclear staining is observed in the interfollicular T-cell zone of reactive lymphoid tissue (tonsil, lymph node, and spleen) and absent in germinal centers or mantle or marginal zones. Anti-T-bet also stains certain B-cell lymphoproliferative disorders, such as precursor B-cell lymphoblastic leukemia and lymphoblastic lymphoma, and B-cell neoplasms from mature B-cells, marginal zone lymphoma, and hairy cell leukemia. Anti-T-bet is useful for identifying B-cell and T-cell lymphoproliferative disorders, as it does not stain B-cell neoplasms from the pre-germinal center or germinal center B-cells, such as mantle cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and Burkitt lymphoma.
