Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 30 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is anaplastic lymphoma.
This antibody recognizes a human p80 protein, identified as a hybrid of the anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) gene and the nucleophosmin (NPM) gene resulting from the t(2;5)(p23;q35) translocation found in a third of large cell lymphomas. This antibody can be used to detect p80 in these lymphomas and may also be used to detect a recently described subtype of large B cell lymphoma, which expresses the full-length ALK protein.

High anaplastic lymphoma kinase immunohistochemical staining in neuroblastoma and ganglioneuroblastoma is an independent predictor of poor outcome.
MA5-16320 was used in immunohistochemistry to study the prognostic value of the immunohistochemical expression of ALK in patients with neuroblastoma or ganglioblastoma
