Perforin is a key molecule for cytotoxicity mediated by T-cells and natural killer cells. It is expressed in the cytoplasmic granule of cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CTLs) and natural killer (NK) cells, and is a specific marker of functionally active CTLs and NK-cells.
Tissue-Tek Genie<sup>&reg;</sup><br /> anti-Perforin Numerous dispersed benign cytotoxic T-cells show moderate to strong granular reactivity for perforin in this example of a “high expresser” tonsil.

Weak to moderate granular cytoplasmic reacitivity is seen for perforin in this example of a peripheral T-cell lymphoma infiltrating bone marrow.

There is no reactivity for perforin in this B-cell chronic lymphocytic lymphoma. Rare cytotoxic T-cells are positive for granular cytoplasmic reactivity.
