metadata.dc.description.resumo: OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the expression of metalloproteinases-1, -2, and -9 in solid ameloblastoma and adenomatoid odontogenic tumor. METHODS: A total of 20 cases of solid ameloblastoma and 10 cases of adenomatoid odontogenic tumors were selected and immunohistochemically assessed. Metalloproteinases-1, -2, and -9 immunoexpression and their distribution pattern were noted and semiquantitatively scored. The scores obtained were statistically analyzed. RESULTS: Matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-1 showed a predominant expression in both tumors and was found in stroma and parenchyma. For MMP-2, there was a varied expression, with 80% and 60% of immunoreactive tumor cells in ameloblastoma and adenomatoid odontogenic tumor respectively. Regarding stromal cells, 65% of ameloblastomas and 80% of adenomatoid odontogenic tumors showed positivity. There was immunoexpression of the MMP-9 in parenchymal and stromal cells in all cases of both tumors analyzed. A statistically significant difference in the expression of MMP-1 in relation to the expression of MMP-2 and -9 in ameloblastomas (P < 0.001) was observed. CONCLUSION: The results suggest that these metalloproteinases are related to growth and progression of tumors analyzed, and particularly in ameloblastoma, its highest aggressiveness may be, in part, a result of the active participation of the stromal cells and their products, such as the MMPs studied.
