Stain Name Antibody Description
Calponin Clone CALP Calponin Clone CALP, is a calmodulin, F-actin and tropomyosin binding protein and its expression is restricted to smooth muscle cells and has been shown a very sensitive marker for smooth muscle differentiation. Due to the increasingly notice phenomenon of marked decreased/altered expression in ductal carcinoma in-situ associated myoepithelial cells, it is often routinely included in the myoepithelial cell marker panel *(SMMHC, p63, and calponin) to distinguish DCIS from invasive ductal carcinoma.
