Allele loss, replication errors and loss of expression of E-cadherin in colorectal cancers.
BACKGROUND: Loss of E-cadherin expression has been implicated in the development of invasive characteristics in colorectal carcinomas. Failure to express E-cadherin may result from mutations of the E-cadherin gene (HSECAD). AIMS: To examine the correlation between E-cadherin expression and genetic changes at HSECAD; and to examine differences in E-cadherin expression and genetic changes at HSECAD between three different groups of colorectal cancer--replication error positive (RER+) sporadic c...Expand abstract
