The Slug transcription factor plays an important role in epithelial-mesenchymal transformation during embryogenesis and is expressed in adult tissues during carcinogenesis. By detecting expression of a Slug-beta-galactosidase fusion protein, we have now demonstrated that Slug is also re-expressed in a variety of normal tissues in the adult mouse. Slug is expressed at relatively high levels in patchy stretches of basal cells in stratified and pseudostratified epithelium, including skin, oral… CONTINUE READING
