Increased expression of dystroglycan inhibits the growth and tumorigenicity of human mammary epithelial cells.


Dystroglycan (DG) is an adhesion molecule formed by two subunits, alpha (extracellular) and beta (transmembrane) DG, which are codified by a single gene and form a continuous link from the extracellular matrix to the intracellular cytoskeleton. Reduction or loss of expression of DG has been observed in human cancer cell lines and primary tumors and has been… (More)
