Immunoexpression of Bcl-x in squamous cell carcinoma and keratoacanthoma: differences in pattern and correlation with pathobiology.


AIMS Bcl-x is an important anti-apoptotic member of the Bcl-2 family. The aim was to determine its immunoexpression in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and keratoacanthoma (KA). METHODS AND RESULTS Sixteen SCCs and 39 KAs were investigated by Bcl-x immunohistochemistry. Bcl-x immunoreactivity was mostly diffuse in SCC (75% of cases), whereas that… (More)
