  • Two-phase carcinogenesis in hamster buccal pouch 

    Odukoya, o; Shklar, G (Elsevier Inc., 1982-11)
    A two-phase mechanism of chemical carcinogenesis in hamster buccal pouch has been demonstrated. Painting of buccal pouches three times weekly with a 0.1 percent solution of 7,12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene (DMBA) in mineral ...
  • Enhanced basal autophagy supports ameloblastoma-derived cell survival and reactivation 

    Dhingra, A; Odukoya, O; Arotiba, G; Olawuyi, A; Boesze-Battaglia, K; Sharp, R.C; Efiom, O.A; Akintoye, S.O (Elsevier Ltd, 2018-11-14)
    OBJECTIVES: Ameloblastoma is an aggressive odontogenic jaw neoplasm. Its unlimited growth confers high potential for malignant transformation and recurrence. It is unclear why ameloblastoma is highly recurrent despite ...
  • Epithelial jaw cysts: analysis of 126 Nigerian cases 

    Ogunlewe, MO; Odukoya, O; Akinwande, JA (African Dental Journal, 1996)

  • Nucleolar organizer regions in jaw tumours of cartilaginous origin 

    Afolabi, OC; Odukoya, O; Arole, G; Banjo, A F (West African Journal Of Medicine, 2001-03)
    Nucleolar organizer regions [NORs] are loops of DNA that transcribe to ribosomal RNA. They can be visualized as intranuclear black dots by histochemical staining with a colloid silver solution. Silver-stained nucleolar ...
  • Analysis of Elastic Tissue in Histological Variants of Pleomorphic Salivary Adenoma seen at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital over a period of 35 Years 

    Effiom, OA; Olawuyi, AB; Olorunsola, KD; Olisa, AG; Odukoya, O; Ogundana, OM; Ajayi, OF; Odukoya, O (West Africa Journal of Medicien, 2014-07)
