Anti-PNL2 is a novel melanoma marker monoclonal antibody, which has recently been introduced as an immunohistochemical reagent to stain melanocytes and tumors derived therefrom. The antigen recognized by PNL2 is different from Melan A and gp100. Its epitope is not destroyed by digestion with neuraminidase i.e. its epitope is not glycosylated. Anti-PNL2 may be most useful because of its high sensitivity for metastatic melanoma (87%), as opposed to 76% for anti-HMB45 and 82% for anti-MART-1. Anti-PNL2 labels intra-epidermal nevi while the dermal component of compound nevi are largely non-reactive with anti-PNL2. Antibodies against PNL2, MART-1 (Melan A) and HMB45 stain most clear cell sarcoma cells and a few cells in angiomyolipomas and lymphangioleiomyomatosis. Anti-PNL2 is a useful antibody for the identification of melanomas and clear cell sarcomas. Differential diagnosis is aided by the results from a panel of antibodies, including antibodies against HMB45, MART-1, tyrosinase, and MiTF.

Application Notes

Optimal dilution of the Melanoma antibody PNL2 should be determined by the researcher.

1. Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM Citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min.
2. The prediluted format is supplied in a dropper bottle and is optimized for use in IHC. After epitope retrieval step (if required), drip mAb solution onto the tissue section and incubate at RT for 30 min.


Melanocyte antigen was used as the immunogen for the Melanoma antibody PNL2.


Store the Melanoma antibody PNL2 at 2-8oC (with azide) or aliquot and store at -20oC or colder (without azide).
