Expression of epithelial ER and PR proteins was common, occurring in 43% to 84% of PTs. Expression of epithelial AR protein and stromal ER, PR, and AR proteins was low (5% or less) in all tumors. An inverse relationship of epithelial ER and PR protein expression with degree of malignancy in PT was found (P < .05), and ER expression also correlated with mitotic count (P < .05). When considering PT with the expression of ER or PR proteins and the coexpression of both, the inverse relationship with tumor grade also was significant (P < .05). As the hormonal receptor protein expression shows a consistent decrease with increasing malignancy, we infer that the epithelium has a crucial role in the pathogenesis or progression of PT. © American Society for Clinical Pathology.||Source Title:||American Journal of Clinical Pathology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/132651||ISSN:||00029173||DOI:||10.1309/D206-DLF8-WDNC-XJ8K|
