Alternate Test Names:
Nuclear localization of SF-1 can be used to distinguish sex cord-stromal tumors (SCST) from non-sex cord-stromal tumors (e.g., borderline tumors, serous carcinomas, etc.) and is therefore useful in the differential diagnosis of these neoplasms. Antibodies to SF-1 should be run in a panel with other sex cord-stromal tumor markers, such as inhibin and calretinin.
Subcellular localization: Nuclear
CPT Code(s): 88342 or 88341 (reference only; CPTs may vary)
