p63 is a member of the p53 family and regulates crucial events in the formation of epithelial structures, but the role of p63 in tumor is unclear. We found that Snail-induced epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is accompanied by down-regulation of p63 in human squamous cell carcinomas (SCC). #Np63A is the predominantly expressed p63 isoform in SCC(More)
