OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to investigate the pattern of Twist expression in a series of ameloblastomas, and to study the possible role of Twist in the bone destruction and local invasiveness of ameloblastoma variants. STUDY DESIGN Immunohistochemical study was performed for Twist protein in 53 ameloblastomas (32 solid/multicystic [SA] and 21 unicystic [UA]). RESULTS The salient finding was that expression of Twist was related to the histological subtype of tumors, as there… CONTINUE READING
