Clinical Information

Wilms tumor-1 (WT-1) protein is a transcription factor that acts as a tumor suppressor gene. WT-1 is involved in differentiation of certain tissues such as mesothelium and the urogenital system. It is also expressed in Wilms tumor, a kidney tumor found in children. In normal tissues, it is expressed in kidney, a subset of hematopoietic cells, Sertoli cells in the testis, granulosa cells in the ovary, and decidual cells of the uterus.

Interpretation

This test includes only technical performance of the stain (no pathologist interpretation is performed). If diagnostic consultation by a pathologist is required order PATHC / Pathology Consultation.

 

The positive and negative controls are verified as showing appropriate immunoreactivity. If a control tissue is not included on the slide, a scanned image of the relevant quality control tissue is available upon request. Contact 855-516-8404.

 

Interpretation of this test should be performed in the context of the patient's clinical history and other diagnostic tests by a qualified pathologist.
