    • RelevanceMelanoma-associated antigens (MAAs) are highly immunogenic human antigens that are recognized by cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs). Both ocular and skin melanomas are derived from normal melanocytes that originate from the neural crest, although the melanocytes of the eye are functionally and morphologically distinct. Both types of melanomas carry a wide range of MAAs. Melanoma Associated Antigen 100+ / 25kDa is mainly present in the cytoplasm of melanoma cells and nevocellular nevi.
