The amyloid of canine amyloid-producing odontogenic tumor (APOT) was evaluated biochemically and immunohistochemically. The N-terminal amino-acid sequence of purified amyloid protein from a canine APOT was strikingly similar to the sequence in both rat ameloblastin and porcine sheathlin. Immunohistochemically, the amyloid in APOT from 9 dogs was strongly(More)
In the present study, 15 canine ovaries without morphological lesions were examined histologically and immunohistochemically by using a large number of proteins including AE1/AE3, cytokeratin7 (CK7), CK13, CK20, vimentin, desmin, alpha smooth muscle actin (alphaSMA), calponin, S100, Neurofilaments, Inhibinalpha, placental alkaline phosphatase (PLAP) and(More)
Neuroendocrine (NE) carcinoma was diagnosed in 10 dogs. In six cases examined by cephalometric radiography and computerized tomography, a large mass was seen to fill the nasal cavity. Histopathologically, sheets, nests or ribbons of neoplastic cells were separated by delicate or thick fibrovascular stroma. The neoplastic cells were round, oval, or(More)
Solid tumors are composed of a heterogeneous population of cells surviving in various concentrations of oxygen. In a hypoxic environment, tumor cells generally up-regulate glycolysis and, therefore, generate more lactate that must be expelled from the cell through proton transporters to prevent intracellular acidosis. Monocarboxylate transporter 1 (MCT1) is(More)
Osteosarcoma (OS), the most common bone tumor, includes OS of the head (OSH) and appendicular OS (OSA). In dogs, it is classified into 6 histologic subtypes: osteoblastic, chondroblastic, fibroblastic, telangiectatic, giant cell, and poorly differentiated. This study investigated the significance of the histologic classification relevant to clinical outcome(More)
Amyloid-producing odontogenic tumors (APOTs) of the facial skin were diagnosed in 3 domestic cats. The neoplasms had the histopathological characteristics of the odontogenic tumor. The neoplastic cells were present in irregular islands, strands, and sheets. The peripheral neoplastic cells of the islands and strands were arranged in a palisading fashion,(More)
Pleomorphic adenomas of the salivary gland were diagnosed in two dogs. The tumours were single, firm and well circumscribed, with a smooth cut surface. Metastatic tumours were not detected. Histopathological examination revealed that the tumours contained multiple cysts lined with luminal epithelial cells and myoepithelial cells, and mucinous, myxochondroid(More)
Oral and cutaneous tissues are the most frequent origin in canine squamous cell carcinoma (SSC). In SCC, changes in adhesion molecule expression and transition from epithelial to mesenchymal phenotype are thought to be important in development of invasive behavior of neoplastic cells at the leading front of the tumor. We therefore investigated histological(More)
Chordomas of the tip of the tail in 6 ferrets were examined using histopathological, histochemical and immunohistochemical procedures. Histopathologically, round neoplastic cells containing numerous cytoplasmic vacuoles of varying sizes, categorized as "physaliphorous cells", were observed in the amorphous eosinophilic or pale basophilic myxoid stroma.(More)
Histological, immunohistochemical and electron microscopical studies revealed one feline and four canine calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumours in 115 oral tumours over a 10-year period. The tumours consisted of islands and sheets of odontogenic epithelium of varying size within a stroma of fibrous connective tissues. The tumour cells were pleomorphic(More)
