Background Studies have shown tyrosinase to be a very specific marker for melanomas, not cross reacting with any other tumors or normal tissues tested Other studies have shown tyrosinase to be a more sensitive marker when compared to HMB-45 and MART-1. It has also shown to label a higher percentage of desmoplastic melanomas than HMB-45. However, both tyrosinase and MART-1 negative staining was seen in those variants without an epidermal component. Unlike HMB-45, neither tyrosinase or MART-1 discriminates between activated or resting melanocytes. In conclusion, tyrosinase appears to be a superior melanoma marker when compared to HMB-45.
