24 January 2014: More stains, COW #298
The main Stains page is our #3 most popular page (after the Home page and the Jobs page), and CD markers is #8, so we plan to accelerate our updates. Recently, we added CD Markers: CD270 (associated with follicular lymphoma), CD351 (Fc receptor for IgA and IgM), CD352 (contributes to germinal center formation, associated with autoimmune diseases), CD353 (involved in lymphocyte activation) and biomarker AMY1A (helps differentiate oncocytoma from chromophobe renal cell carcinoma), and updated Alpha fetoprotein (AFP) and alpha-lactalbumin. We are checking out the diagnosis for Case #298, and thinking about a new editorial policy for the Cases, to have more oversight. Perhaps someone on our editorial board can review each case before it is posted.
