Recent data suggest that p120-catenin plays a role in the regulation of functionality of E-cadherin, a protein essential for the establishment and maintenance of cell-cell contacts. Since dysfunction of intercellular adhesiveness is an alteration frequently observed in colon cancer we have studied the expression and distribution of p120-catenin in human colorectal tumors.
