From a differential mRNA display comparing a non- and a highly metastasizing human melanoma cell line, we isolated and characterized memD. memD is preferentially expressed in the highly metastasizing melanoma cell lines of a larger panel. The encoded protein, MEMD, is identical to activated leukocyte cell adhesion molecule (ALCAM), a recently identified… CONTINUE READING
