Napsin is found in two isoforms, napsin A and B, with highly homologous nucleotide sequences (91.2%). Napsin A appears to be a functional proteinase, predominantly expressed in lung and kidney. Napsin B is transcribed exclusively in cells related to the immune system and lacks an in-frame stop codon and is believed to be a pseudogene.(PMID:12698189). Napsin A is superior to TTF-1 in distinguishing primary lung ACA from other carcinomas (except kidney), particularly primary lung small cell carcinoma, and primary thyroid carcinoma.(PMID:22288963).
