GATA-3 antibody (GATA binding protein 3) is a member of the GATA family of transcription factors. GATA-3 appears to control a set of genes involved in the differentiation and proliferation of breast cancer. The expression of GATA-3 has a strong association with estrogen receptor-alpha expression in breast cancer and evidence exists that GATA-3 may be used to predict response to hormonal therapy of breast cancer patients. GATA-3 has also been shown to be a novel marker for bladder cancer. In one study, GATA-3 stained 67% of 308 urothelial carcinomas but no prostate or renal carcinomas.
