Metallothionein (MT) is a chelator present in myoepithelial cells, whilst the Fas-receptor (APO-1, CD95) has been described primarily in human T Jurkat cells. 20 cases of carcinoma of the tongue were investigated immunocytochemically with regard to MT, Fas and Bcl-2. In normal oral squamous epithelium, MT is located in the basal/parabasal dividing cells only. In well-differentiated nests of carcinomas, MT is observed almost entirely in peripherally located cells. In situ end-labelling indicates… CONTINUE READING
