The expression of T-cadherin was studied in normal skin, in psoriasis, epithelial benign and malignant tumors of the skin. In normal skin T-cadherin was expressed by epidermal basal cells. Basal expression was also detected in psoriasis, actinic keratosis, keratoacanthoma, and surface basiloma. The expression of T-cadherin was significantly lower in malignant tumor cells (infiltrative basiloma, metatypical and squamous cell cancer). Normal skin vascular endotheliocytes and benign tumor cells expressed von Willebrand ’s factor (vWF) and T-cadherin. Loss of expression of the classical markers of endothelial cells (vWF), expression of -actin in vessel-like structures, and heterogeneity of T-cadherin expression in tumor vessels correlated with histological signs and invasive phenotypes of more aggressive tumors, such as metatypical cancer, invasive basiloma, and squamous cell carcinoma.
