In this study, relative SCCA1 expression rates of the two groups were similar (P Greater than 0.
11-13 SCCA1 and SCCA2 are the genes coding SCCA that is intrinsically a serine protease inhibitor, and SCCA2 is located next to the gene breakpoint of 18-trisomysyndrome patients.
SCCA2 was used instead of SCCA in practice because SCCA1 and SCCA2 function differently.
However, studies on SCCA1 and SCCA2 remain limited, especially for the debate on the correlation between SCCA and pathological parameters of cervical squamous cell carcinoma.
