Atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors are defined by mutations in the INI1 gene. BAF-47 is recognized as the protein product of the INI1 gene, and therefore is diagnostic by its absence within tumor cells (note positive internal control reactivity with non-neoplastic blood vessels - unnecessarily large green arrow).
