Supplier: Dako (view all products)
Expression of the von Willebrand factor gene is tissue specific and confined to endothelial cells and megakaryocytes. VWF is present in plasma, in the Weibel-Pallade bodies of endothelial cells, in the alpha-granule in megakaryocytes and platelets derived from them, as well as in the subendothelial matrix of the vessel wall. Results aid in the classification of acute myeloid leukemia FAB type M7, angiosarcoma and epithelioid hemangioendothelioma.
