BACKGROUND S100 proteins belong to a family of calcium-binding proteins that regulate cell proliferation and differentiation. Despite our growing knowledge about the biology of S100 proteins in some human cancers, little is known about the expression of S100 family members in epidermal tumors and their clinical significance. OBJECTIVE To determine the… CONTINUE READING
