Abstract

Caldesmon is an actin-myosin binding protein which regulates actin-myosin interactions. The heavy isoform (h-caldesmon) is specific to smooth muscle cells and the non-muscle type light isoform (l-caldesmon) is involved in maintaining cytoskeletal architecture and integrity. The role of caldesmon in the pathogenesis of odontogenic cysts is unknown. The aim of this study was to evaluate caldesmon expression in benign odontogenic cysts using immunohistochemistry (IHC). Caldesmon expression was compared with markers of myoid differentiation, alpha-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) and calponin.
