Expression of p300 and p300/CBP associated factor (PCAF) in actinic keratosis and squamous cell carcinoma of the skin.
p300 and p300/CBP-associated factor (PCAF) are histone modifiers and transcriptional co-factors involved in a number of cell processes. We investigated their expression patterns in 79 actinicExpand
