[7] Another theory is that the squamous changes in the breast probably begin within the myoepithelial cell layer, before eventually involving the entire acinus.
(1,13,16,17,19,20) The best way to identify myoepithelial cells is to use alpha-SMA or calponin, plus vimentin, because myoepithelial cells in tumors are hardly ever fully differentiated, is Differences in the immunohistochemical profile are related to the myoepithelioma subtype and to a great deal of heterogeneity within each category.
However, the myoepithelial cell layer may be attenuated or lost in benign and neoplastic apocrine proliferations.

(47) Immunohistochemical stains can be employed in an attempt to highlight the presence of myoepithelial cells around displaced glands; however, these stains are typically only helpful when a myoepithelial cell layer is present, because staining may be attenuated or even absent in epithelial fragments that have undergone displacement (Figure 6, C).
