Zinc finger protein of the cerebellum 4 IgG Ab [Presence] in Serum or Plasma by Line blot
This term was created for, but is not limited in use to, the submitter's test strip, a membrane strip pre-coated with a specific set of antigens in parallel lines. If antibodies to any of those antigens are present in the patient's serum, they will bind to the specific antigen. The bound patient antibodies are then detected using labelled anti-human antibodies. Various manufacturers classify this method as an immunoblot technique. LOINC uses the immunoblot (IB) method to mean that some electrophoretic/chromatographic separation occurs such that position (size) of the band is part of the assessment (as in Western blot). Because this assay does not involve a separation step but rather uses strips with pre-fixed antigens, the LOINC Method is Line blot.

LP34979-2 Zinc finger protein of the cerebellum 4
Paraneoplastic neurological syndrome (PNS) is an autoimmune disorder that is manifested by progressive central, peripheral and/or autonomic nervous system symptoms. The neurological symptoms include encephalitis, autonomic failure, peripheral neuropathy, cerebellar ataxia, visual complaints and more. The antibodies that attack the neural tissue develop in response to tumor cells. The neoplasm may or may not be detectable using conventional imaging modalities. Since PNS can be associated with multiple antibodies testing usually includes a panel of PNS antibodies. In addition, the different PNS antibodies are associated with certain cancers so the antibody pattern can assist in identifying the specific tumor if it was previously undiagnosed. PMID: 22412264 Of patients positive for the zinc finger protein of the cerebellum 4 (Zic4) antibodies, ninety-two percent were diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. Zic4 antibodies often occur concurrently with Hu and CRMP5 antibodies. PMID: 15007130 Source: Regenstrief LOINC

- Change Reason
- This term was created for an assay that uses a membrane strip pre-coated with a specific set of antigens in parallel lines. Because the antigens are seperated by electrophoresis/chromatographic separation during manufacturing, not during the test procedure itself, this test was assigned a LOINC Method of Immunoassay (IA) and not Immunoblot (IB). However, upon further review of IA, IB, and Immunoblot strip methodologies and regulatory distinctions between these, we changed the Method from IA to Line blot so that users can distinguish between these three Methods. The meaning of the term has not changed since it was created for an IB strip assay as described in the term description.
