Anti-Hu antibodies were originally isolated from a patient with paraneoplastic encephalomyelitis, a rare condition of selective neural tissue injury associated with small cell lung carcinoma. The antibodies bind specifically to antigens present exclusively in neuronal cells and are thus useful as markers of neuronal cells in tissue. The Hu antigen is an RNA-binding protein of the embryonic lethal abnormal visual (Elav) family.
