General description

Immunohistochemical methods have localized chromogranin in a wide variety of endocrine tissues including the pituitary, pancreas, hypothalamus, thymus, thyroid, intestine, and parathyroid. Neuroendocrine cells exhibit a fine granular immunoreactivity to chromogranin. It is generally accepted that the co-expression of certain keratins and chromogranin mean neuroendocrine lineage. The presence of strong chromogranin staining and absence of keratin staining should raise the possibility of paraganglioma. The co-expression of chromogranin and NSE is typical of neuroendocrine neoplasms. Most pituitary adenomas and prolactinomas readily express chromogranin.

Bovine chromaffin granules contain two major families of acidic proteins, chromogranins A and B. The occurrence of these proteins in endocrine and nervous tissue was investigated by immunoblotting (one- and two-dimensional), and by immunohistochemistry. Immunoblotting revealed that in anterior hypophysis

An antibody (LK2H10) to chromogranin A has been recommended for use in ultrastructural identification of neuroendocrine secretory granules. Previous studies have demonstrated immunoreactive chromogranin A in specimens prepared for electron microscopy by glutaraldehyde fixation only. In this study, the effect

Chromogranin A is the major soluble protein co-stored and co-released with catecholamines from catecholamine storage vesicles of adrenal medulla and sympathetic nerve. We recently described a widespread distribution of chromogranin, by radioimmunoassay, in all polypeptide hormone producing tissues. To define
