Lambda Light Chain [N10/2]


This antibody recognizes lambda light chains of human immunoglobulins, which may be useful in the identification of leukemias, plasmacytomas, and certain non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas (1-5). The most common feature of these malignancies is the restricted expression of a single light chain class. The normal human kappa/lambda ratio is approximately 2:1. The presence of clear cut light chain restriction with a kappa/lambda ratio more than 10:1 is consistent with a malignant proliferation (2,6).
