MYB
  
  • All IHC stains will include a positive control tissue
  

The MYB antibody is useful identifying adenoid cystic carcinoma arising in the breast

Specifications

  • A recurrent translocation is found in subset of adenoid cystic carcinomas (ACC), (t(6;9)(q22-23;p23-24)) resulting in the fusion of the oncogene MYB with the transcription factor NFIB.
  • The MYB-NFIB fusion gene results in increased MYB protein overexpression by IHC.
  • This antibody is useful identifying adenoid cystic carcinoma arising in the breast.

Staining pattern

  • Nuclear (diffuse, moderate to strong staining); this staining pattern can be confined to the myoepithelial cells.
  • In resection specimens, this antibody can demonstrate a peripheral staining pattern, presumably due to slower formal fixation and short half-life of the MYB protein.
    • Weak or focal staining can be seen other entities arising in the breast (including collagenous spherulosis, basal-like triple negative breast cancers).                                   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Applications:

  • Breast ACC: Diffuse, moderate to strong MYB IHC staining; sensitivity of 100%, specificity of 100%.
    • Focal, weak MYB IHC staining has been described in triple negative breast carcinoma and collagenous spherulosis
    • The MYB IHC stain is more sensitive and specific than FISH testing in identifying ACC of the breast. MYB FISH is reported to be 96% sensitive and 89% specific, but 46% of MYB-NFIB negative ACC by FISH testing will stain for MYB IHC
  • Salivary gland ACC:  MYB IHC sensitivity of 82%, specificity of 86%.
  • Cutaneous ACC: Small case series suggests high sensitivity (8 of 9 cases positive)3
  • MYB IHC positivity has been described in DCIS, non- adenoid cystic salivary gland neoplasms (acinic cell carcinoma, basal cell adenoma, basal cell adenocarcinoma, epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma, monomorphic carcinoma, mucoepidermoid carcinoma, pleomorphic adenoma, polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma, salivary duct carcinoma, salivary adenoma NOS), squamous cell carcinoma, basaloid squamous cell carcinoma,  lymphoma, thymoma, colonic adenocarcinoma, melanoma, skin adnexal tumors (dermal cylindromas and eccrine spiroadenomas), sinonasal rhabdomyosarcoma, and nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
