In this immunohistochemical examination, the expression of Notch1 peptide was detected in neoplastic cells in a case of osteosarcoma of the maxilla of a 31-year-old Indonesian male patient. Notch1 peptide appeared in the cytoplasm of neoplastic cells of comparatively well-differentiated areas of the osteosarcoma, an osteoblastic area containing osteoid and/or immature bone tissues. The results suggest that Notch1 is closely related to cytological differentiation or acquisition of cytological characteristics in neoplastic cells of osteosarcoma.
