Contrary to previous data,[23-26] Arber et al[18] have recently demonstrated by immunohistochemistry that endometrial adenocarcinomas (8/8) and hyperplastic endometria (2/2) express CD117.
Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues from 7 endometrial hyperplasias, 14 proliferative endometria, and 14 secretory endometria were immunohistochemically analyzed for CD117 expression.
One endometrial polyp, obtained from a case of cryopreserved endometrioid carcinoma, and 9 frozen archived endometrioid endometrial carcinomas were also analyzed by immunohistochemistry in order to examine expression of CD117 in malignant endometria, as well as to identify suitable cases for CD117 immunoprecipitation and Western blot analysis (selection criteria and blotting methodology are described below).
Thirteen (93%) of the proliferative endometria were positively immunostained for CD117, of which 5 cases had intense, focal cytoplasmic staining within epithelial cells (Figure 1), 6 cases exhibited intense membrane staining correlating with the terminal bar of isolated ciliated epithelial cells (Figure 2), and 2 cases had both cytoplasmic and terminal bar staining.
These experiments were conducted using endometria from three individual gilts on D12 of the estrous cycle.
