Thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) is a recently identified member of the homeodomain transcription factor family, which plays a role in regulating genes expressed within the thyroid, lung and brain, including thyroglobulin, thyroid peroxidase, Clara cell secretory protein and the surfactant proteins. Additional studies, including gene targeting experiments, have clearly shown that expression of TTF-1 is essential for morphogenesis of the thyroid, lung and ventral forebrain, as TTF-1… CONTINUE READING
