It recognizes a protein of 15kDa, identified as Gross cystic disease fluid protein 15 (GCDFP-15). It is a major protein component of benign breast gross cysts. It is a known marker of breast cancer, as it is found in approximately 50% of all breast cancer specimens. GCDFP-15, also known as prolactin inducible protein (PIP), is a prolactin and androgen controlled protein. This antibody is useful in the identification of metastatic breast
carcinoma, or fluid analysis.
