RESULTS: As already reported for E-cadherin, beta- and gamma-catenin, p120 expression showed a homogeneous membranous localization in normal oral specimens. The intensity of staining for p120 progressively increased from basal and parabasal layers toward the intermediate spinous layer. No staining for p120 was observed in the upper layer. NCTC showed a membranous positivity. OSC 20, CAL 33 and CAL 27 showed a membranous positivity, even if polarized to cell-cell adhesion sites, in 40-50% of cells. OSC 20, CAL 33 and CAL 27 cells showed also a cytoplasmic delocalization. All positive KB cells showed a prevalent cytoplasmic staining and 10% of these cells showed a nuclear delocalization. In cancer cells, p120 showed an inverse relationship with the degree of differentiation for a progressive displacement of the signal toward the cytoplasm or nucleus in dedifferentiated cells. In conclusions, this nuclear delocalization for p120 could suppose its potential involvement in signalling and cancer transformation.
