By a PCR-based screen for cDNA clones of protein kinases, we have isolated a cDNA clone encoding a novel protein kinase (referred to as EDPK) of 305 amino acids. EDPK has a catalytic domain of 271 amino acids that contains all conserved subdomains characteristic of the protein kinase family. Only short sequences are present at the N- and C-terminal ends(More)
Epithelial mesenchymal transition (EMT), the transition of epithelial cells into motile mesenchymal cells, plays an important role in embryogenesis, cancer invasion, and metastasis. Ameloblastomas are common epithelial odontogenic tumors, occurring exclusively in the mandible with locally invasive growth. Thirty-seven ameloblastoma cases were evaluated for(More)
