Abstract

The molecular mechanisms of growth suppression by retinoic acid (RA) were examined. Our results suggest that the cytostatic effects of RA could be mediated by the activation of endogenous CBR3 gene in oral squamous cell carcinomas (OSCCs), and the expression is a potential marker for oral malignancy.
