Factor XIII antibody is a betaglobulin found in plasma as an alpha2beta2 heterodimer; whereas in platelets, only the alpha2 unit exists. Factor XIIIa recognizes human Factor XIII A-chain in both reduced and non-reduced forms. It does not react with human Factor XIII B-chain or human Factor XII. Studies have shown Factor XIIIa is a dermal dendrocyte marker with variable reactions to these types of tumors. It can be used for histiocytic phenotyping and has been reported to mark capillary hemangiomas and tumors of the central nervous system. Factor XIIIa has also been used with CD34 to differentiate between dermatofibroma and dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans.
