Zinc-alpha 2-glycoprotein has been detected in most body fluids, and its antibody labels the corresponding glandular epithelia. We have also detected it in human stratified epithelia (epidermis and buccal mucosa). In this study, the mRNA levels of zinc-alpha 2-glycoprotein were found to be about twice as high in epithelial cells of mucosal origin (whether normal primaries or neoplastic cell lines) as in epidermoid cells (normal epidermal primary cultures, an immortalized but non-tumorigenic… CONTINUE READING
