BACKGROUND: Focal adhesion kinase (FAK) is an important mediator of cell adhesion, growth proliferation, survival, angiogenesis, and migration. FAK is over expressed in many locally invasive and malignant lesions including oral cancer. Looking at the tumorigenic nature of keratocystic odontogenic tumor (KCOT), which involves local invasion, proliferation, and recurrence, we hypothesized strong expression of FAK in the epithelial lining of KCOT. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 34 KCOTs, 11 orthokeratinized odontogenic cysts (OOCs), 25 radicular cysts (RCs), 17 dentigerous cysts (DCs) and 25 dental follicles (DFs) were retrieved from archives and subjected to the immunohistochemical analysis using FAK antibody...
