OBJECTIVE Global hypomethylation is a common epigenetic event in cancer. Keratocystic odontogenic tumor (KCOT) and ameloblastoma are different tumors but posses the same tissue in origin. Here, we investigated long interspersed nuclear element-1 (LINE-1 or L1) methylation status between ameloblastoma and KCOT. MATERIALS AND METHODS We studied the methylation levels of the long interspersed nucleotide element-1 (LINE-1) in ameloblastoma and KCOT. After collecting ameloblastoma cells and… CONTINUE READING
