Analysis of E-cadherin in diffuse-type gastric cancer using a mutation-specific monoclonal antibody.

Abstract

In-frame deletions from the E-cadherin mRNA, coding for a homophilic cell adhesion molecule, are characteristic for diffuse-type gastric carcinomas. Using immunohistochemical analysis the mutant form cannot be distinguished from normal E-cadherin, making results difficult to interpret. In this study, a rat monoclonal antibody, designated E-cad delta 9-1… (More)
