Expression of epithelial-cadherin, alpha-catenin and beta-catenin during human intrahepatic bile duct development: a possible role in bile duct morphogenesis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND/AIMS Cell adhesion molecules play an important role in the morphogenesis of developing organs. However, little is known about their expression during intrahepatic bile duct development. METHODS We immunohistochemically investigated the expression of E-cadherin (E-Cad), alpha-catenin (A-Cat) and beta-catenin (B-Cat) during human intrahepatic… (More)
