Nuclear localization of beta-catenin involved in precancerous change in oral leukoplakia

Abstract

Oral leukoplakia is a precancerous change developed in the oral mucosa, and the mechanism that oral leukoplakia becomes malignant through atypical epithelium is not known. Here we compared the β-catenin expression detected by immunohistochemical staining in the normal oral epithelium and in the oral leukoplakia with or without dysplasia. The normal oral… (More)
