Loss of E-cadherin promotes migration and invasion of cholangiocarcinoma cells and serves as a potential marker of metastasis

Abstract

Tumor progression is characterized by loss of cell adhesion and increase of invasion and metastasis. E-cadherin, a cell adhesion molecule, is frequently downregulated and has been proposed as an important mediator in epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in tumors. In this study, we investigated the expression of E-cadherin and its association with cancer… (More)
