Expression of the Ca(2+)-dependent, homotypic cell:cell adhesion molecule, E-cadherin (E-cad), suppresses tumor cell invasion and metastasis in experimental tumor models. Decreased E-cad expression is common in poorly differentiated, advanced-stage carcinomas. These data implicate E-cad as an "invasion suppressor" gene. The mechanism by which E-cad is silenced in advanced stage carcinomas is unclear. In this report, we show that: (a) the 5' CpG island of E-cad is densely methylated inpmid:7585573 fatcat:5dcha6tfwvhy5eaeye76pjdn2m
