The tumor cells in STMG, LTMG, and CDWSG were positive for [alpha]-SMA (A), desmin (B), and vimentin (C).
Immunohistochemically, it differs from other mesenchymal tumors by its CD34 (+), signal transduction and activation of transcription 6 (+), aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 (+), desmin (-), SMA (-), CD31 (-), S100 (-) and C-kit (-) staining pattern (15).
Then, the expression of [alpha]-SMA and desmin were analyzed in HSCs exposed to hypoxia in the presence or absence of the PPAR[gamma] agonist, rosiglitazone (RSG, 50 nM), by western blotting and immunofluorescence.
Immunohistochemically, leiomyosarcomas are almost invariably strongly positive for SMA, and desmin is usually positive (70-80%), along with positivity for heavy-caldesmon and smooth muscle myosin [16].
It is known that myosin mainly contributes to the tensile strength of the muscle, while a-actinin and desmin are cytoskeletal proteins responsible for the maintenance of structural and mechanical integrity of actin filaments in the Z-disk [15].
EMA was also strongly positive in greater than 75% of tumor cells, whereas it was negative for S100 and desmin. Epithelial marker expression in SC decreases with a decrease in the degree of epithelial differentiation indicating that an immunopositivity although can be helpful, a negative result does not rule out the diagnosis of SC [4].
On the contrary, the mRNA and protein expression of desmin was significantly upregulated in the HG group compared with the control group (P < 0.01) and was significantly downregulated in the HG + ACOS group compared with the HG group (P < 0.01 or 0.05) (Figure 7).
By immunohistochemistry, tumor cells stained positively for vimentin and alpha1-antitrypsin, partially positive for desmin, and negative for myogenin, smooth muscle actin (SMA), and pancytokeratin (AE1/ AE3) (Figures 3(a)-3(f)).
Immunohistochemical staining (strongly positive for CD34 and negative for CD31, desmin, and smooth muscle actin) supports a diagnosis of cardiac myxoma (typically staining positive for CD34 and negative for smooth muscle actin [5]), while arguing against that of fibromas (typically staining positive for smooth muscle actin and negative for CD34 [6]) or rhabdomyoma (typically desmin and actinpositive [7]).
Immunohistochemistry confirmed the diagnostic hypothesis of a UTROSCT, with positive expression for CD56, smooth muscle actin, CD10, desmin, and pan-cytokeratin.
Immunohistochemical examination showed that the tumor cells stained for smooth muscle actin (SMA) and vimentin while they did not stain for desmin, S100, and CD34 (Figure 2).
