Reagents, Molecular Assay, Gene Anomaly, Mutation, CDH1
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify mutations in the cadherin 1, type 1, E-cadherin (epithelial) (CDH1) gene, located at chromosome 16q22.1, which encodes for a calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion glycoprotein. Mutations at this locus have been identified in patients with early-onset gastric, breast, colorectal, thyroid, and ovarian cancer.
