Heat pre-treatment of formalin-fixed tissue with antigen retrieval The MOC-1 antibody belongs to cluster 1 antibodies which react with neuroendocrine tissue (N-CAM) and in the lung typically detect SCLC and carcinoids. On the VI. International Workshop on Leukocyte Differentiation (Kobe 1996) this antibody has been designed as CD56, which is a known marker for natural killer cells (NK-cells). Lung cancer is a heterogeneous disease which may be characterized by five histopathological criteria. A distinction is drawn between squamous epithelial carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, large cell carcinoma, adenosquamous carcinoma and small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC). The first four in this line are cited as "non-SCLC" in literature. A number of antibodies have been used for the characterization and clustering of lung carcinoma during the 1. International Workshop on Small Cell Lung Cancer Antigens, London 1987. Cluster 1 membrane protein 125 - 145 kDa.
