Anti-Proliferating Cell Nuclear Antigen (PCNA)


PCNA is a 36 kDa nonhistone nuclear cyclin protein that has an essential role in the initiation of DNA and cell proliferation. PCNA preferentially occurs in dividing cells in a cell cycle-regulated manner and is undetectable or present in small amounts in resting cells. Immunoperoxidase staining for PCNA in benign tissues has revealed positive nuclear staining in normal colonic crypt epithelium, gastric glandular cells, germinal center cells of lymph node, basal cells of skin, and renal tubular epithelial cells. The monoclonal antibody to PCNA might be an acceptable alternative to Ki-67 labeling in routinely processed tissues
