Brain lipid-binding protein is strongly expressed in mature and maturing ganglion cells in NT (GN and GNB), whereas it is absent in poorly differentiated neuroblasts of GNB and NB. Cytoplasmic expression of BLBP in NT increases as the cells undergo neural differentiation and is therefore associated with the extent of tumour differentiation and favorable histology.
