Alternate Test Names:
TTF1; Thyroid transcription factor 1
Identifies: A nuclear transcription factor that is expressed in a very high percentage of lung and thyroid carcinomas. In lung carcinomas, it is expressed in both non-neuroendocrine as well as endocrine neoplasms, but only rarely in lung squamous cell carcinomas. It is expressed in all variants of thyroid carcinoma with the exception of anaplastic carcinoma. TTF1 loses its organ specificity in the context of high grade neuroendocrine carcinomas. It can also more uncommonly be expressed in other carcinomas, including those primary to the colorectum and breast.
