. Expression of RNA-binding protein LIN28 in classic gastric hepatoid carcinomas, gastric fetal type gastrointestinal adenocarcinomas, and hepatocellular carcinomas: An immunohistochemical study with comparison to SALL4, alpha-fetoprotein, glypican-3, . Pathol Res Pract. 2018;214:1707-1712 pubmed publisher
..AFP, glypican-3, Hep Par1 and p-CEA are not useful in distinguishing classic GHCs from HCCs. Combining LIN28 and SALL4 increased the sensitivity to distinguish classic PHCs from HCCs. ..

..Our findings indicate that SALL4 is a novel sensitive and specific marker for ovarian primitive GCTs. SALL4 is particularly useful in distinguishing YST from CCC and better than AFP, glypican-3, CK7, and EMA...
Cao D, Humphrey P, Allan R. SALL4 is a novel sensitive and specific marker for metastatic germ cell tumors, with particular utility in detection of metastatic yolk sac tumors. Cancer. 2009;115:2640-51 pubmed publisher
..SALL4 is a novel sensitive and highly specific marker for metastatic germ cell tumors, and is particularly useful for detecting metastatic yolk sac tumors. ..
Cao D, Li J, Guo C, Allan R, Humphrey P. SALL4 is a novel diagnostic marker for testicular germ cell tumors. Am J Surg Pathol. 2009;33:1065-77 pubmed publisher
..Our findings indicate that SALL4 is a novel sensitive and relatively specific marker for testicular GCTs. SALL4 is a more sensitive marker than AFP and glypican-3 for YST. ..
