There is mounting evidence that SpCC is a monoclonal neoplasm originating from a stem cell giving rise to both components. We tested the hypothesis that spindle cell phenotype might be related to the cadherin-catenin complex, which forms adherens junctions between cells. We analyzed the immunohistochemical expression of E- and N-cadherin, alpha-, beta- and gamma-cat...    »
