    G3-245 Mouse Monoclonal

    Members of the retinoblastoma (Rb) family, including the related proteins p107 and p130, share several properties, including the ability to regulate E2F dependent transcription and to regulate cell-cycle progression. The Rb gene product is a phosphoprotein that is expressed in most normal cells of vertebrates. Rb acts as a tumor suppressor by providing a cell cycle checkpoint between the G1 and S phases. The tumor suppressor gene RB1, encoding the retinoblastoma (Rb) protein, is located at 13q14. By immunohistochemistry, Rb1 expression is defect/negative in soft tissue tumors associated with 13q deletions, all spindle cell lipomas, pleomorphic lipomas, and cellular angiofibromas and most mammary-type myofibroblastomas. Rb1 expression is intact in histologic mimics.
