Proto-oncogenes are highly conservative genes in human cell, which code growth factors, growth factor receptors. enzymes and nuclear protein and are necessary for cell growth and function. Alteration in these genes such as amplification, rearrangement, or mutation appeared to be associated with malignant transfarmation of cells. We examined 14 DNA samples from human squamous cell carcinoma of head and neck with slot blot analysi.. Two out of fourteen samples showed c-myc gene amplification. Nodal involvements (N2a. and N3b) vrere observed in both patients. They were maderately differentiated SCC of larynx. Further studies about c-myc gene rearrangenment and mutaiton should be confirmeg in these samples and examine whether c-myc amplification is correlated with the biologic characteristics of SCC of head and neck.
Key words: Proto-oncogenes, Squamous cell cancer of head and neck, C-myc gene, Amplification
