NF
  
  • All IHC stains will include a positive control tissue
  
  • In normal cells, NF labels neurons, neuronal processes, peripheral nerves, sympathetic ganglion cells, adrenal medulla, and neuroendocrine cells
  • Tumors that react with NF include neuroblastomas, ganglioneuromas, pheochromocytomas, paragangliomas, chemodectomas, neuroendocrine tumors, carcinoid tumors, and some Merkel cell tumors
