Claudin expression in gastric adenocarcinomas: a tissue microarray study with prognostic correlation.

Abstract

The claudins comprise a multigene family of integral membrane proteins, which play a major role in tight junction formation. Aberrations in the expression of certain claudins have been described in a number of malignancies. Our aims were to determine the expression pattern of claudins 1, 3, and 4 as well as ZO-1 in a large series of US patients with gastric… (More)
