Tripartite motif-containing 29 (TRIM29 antibody) is also known as ataxia-telangiectasia group D complementing gene (ATDC). A high expression of TRIM29 antibody has been reported in gastric and pancreatic cancers and correlates with enhanced tumor growth and lymph node metastasis. In-house studies showed that TRIM29 was able to aid in distinguishing lung squamous cell carcinoma from lung adenocarcinoma with a 92% positive accuracy if used in a panel with antibodies such as TTF-1, p63, CK5/6 and Napsin A. Studies have also shown that TRIM29 expression is strongly associated with histological grade, tumor size, extent of invasion and poorer survival rates.
