Podoplanin Information for Pathologists
38 kDa membrane mucoprotein originally detected on surface of rat podocytes. Antibody D2-40 reacts to an O-linked, 40 kDa sialoglycoprotein found on lymphatic endothelium, fetal testis and on the surface of testicular germ cell tumors (also other cells as indicated below). Uses by pathologists Identify lymphatic endothelium to determine presence of lymphatics in various conditions, as well as origin of vascular tumors (J Histochem Cytochem 2009;57:643). Identify lymphatic endothelium to determine lymphatic invasion (Ann Diagn Pathol 2009;13:168).
Common Uses By Pathologists:
Identify lymphatic endothelium to determine presence of lymphatics in various conditions, as well as origin of vascular tumors (J Histochem Cytochem 2009;57:643). Identify lymphatic endothelium to determine lymphatic invasion (Ann Diagn Pathol 2009;13:168). Differentiate mesothelioma (positive, even in effusions, Diagn Cytopathol 2007;35:342) from adenocarcinoma (negative, Cancer 2007;109:933). Note: prognostic significance of lymphatic invasion using D2-40 versus H&E only is unclear:. Not clearly significant - breast carcinoma (Mod Pathol 2009;22:216).
