Expression of Plakophilins (PKP1, PKP2, and PKP3) in Gastric Cancers


BACKGROUND The importance of cell-cell junction proteins (including armadillo proteins) in tumor biology is known, but limited with regard to plakophilins. We explored the relationship between plakophilins (PKP1, PKP2, PKP3) to gastric cancer via immunohistochemical techniques. METHODS We compared the immunohistochemistry of PKPs in 34 gastric… (More)
