Figure 6: Beta-catenin and DNA ploidy in OSCC. Two OSCCs groups were obtained by RT-PCR esteeming: (i) high-expressing beta-catenin cancers (a) showing high aneuploidy degree (prevalently multiploid, followed by hyperdiploid and highly heterogeneous tumors) and lymph node metastases in T1 tumors; (ii) low-expressing beta-catenin cancers (b) with lower aneuploidy degree (prevalently hyperdiploid, followed by lower proportion of multiploid tumor, and tetraploid ones) and no lymph node metastases in T1 tumors.
