Fascin-1 Information for Pathologists
Fascin-1 is an actin bundling protein with important role in cell motility and adhesion. High expression in tumors is generally a poor prognostic marker. Fascin-1 is present in specialized cells with extensive surfaces or migratory potential, such as neurons, glia, dendritic cells, macrophages, skeletal and smooth muscle, endothelial cells but is generally absent in normal epithelial cells.
Common Uses By Pathologists:
Facin-1 staining is generally observed in carcinoma of biliary tract, breast, colon, lung, ovary, pancreas, and skin. Follicular dendritic cell tumors, Hodgkin lymphoma-classic subtype (highly sensitive), interdigitating dendritic cell tumors, Langerhan cell histiocytosis, and urothelial carcinoma (noninvasive papillary or invasive) also express Fascin-1.
