Expression of tissue polypeptide antigen (TPA) in fetal and adult liver: changes in liver disease


Journal of Clinical Pathology 40(7): 719-724
Expression of tissue polypeptide antigen (TPA) in fetal and adult liver: changes in liver disease
The distribution of tissue polypeptide antigen (40 kD molecular weight) in normal adult and fetal liver, and in liver disease was investigated and compared with the distribution of low and high molecular weight cytokeratins. In normal liver tissue polypeptide antigen was found only in bile duct epithelium; this distribution is similar to that of high molecular weight cytokeratin, but differs from that of low molecular weight cytokeratins. In liver disease it was found in areas of ductular transformation; in Mallory's bodies; and in alcoholic liver disease and primary biliary cirrhosis in some hepatocytes that did not contain Mallory's bodies.
