Homozygous deletions on the short arm of chromosome 3 in human oral squamous cell carcinomas.

Recent cytogenetic and allelic deletion analyses have demonstrated that deletions on the short arm of chromosome 3 (3p) are frequently found in various cancers, including oral squamous cell carcinomas (OSCCs). This suggests that one or more tumor suppressor gene(s) for these malignancies might be located on 3p. In the present study, to further define the… (More)
