Melan A (Mart1, Melanoma Antigen Recognized by T-cells 1), is a differentiation antigen that is expressed in melanocytes, most melanomas. Melan A recognizes a subcellular fraction found in melanosomes. Melan A is a useful addition to melanoma panels since it is specific for melanocytic lesions. Both HMB 45 and Melan A are co-expressed in the majority of melanomas, as well as uniquely expressed in certain cases. Melan A antibody, A103 clone labels the tumor cells of a subset of adrenocortical carcinomas and sex cord tumors of the gonads.
