Summary of "Hypermethylation of miR-338-3p and Impact of its Suppression on Cell Metastasis Through N-Cadherin Accumulation at the Cell -Cell Junction and Degradation of MMP in Gastric Cancer."

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been well studied in human carcinogenesis and cancer progression. Our previous study showed the down-regulation of miR-338-3p expression in human gastric cancer (GC). However, the reasons of this dysregulation remain largely unclear.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Calcium-dependent cell adhesion proteins. They are important in the formation of ADHERENS JUNCTIONS between cells. Cadherins are classified by their distinct immunological and tissue specificities, either by letters (E- for epithelial, N- for neural, and P- for placental cadherins) or by numbers (cadherin-12 or N-cadherin 2 for brain-cadherin). Cadherins promote cell adhesion via a homophilic mechanism as in the construction of tissues and of the whole animal body.

Membrane proteins that contain at least two typical consecutive CADHERIN motifs but typically more than cadherin or protocadherin proteins. Their overall domain organization also differs from those of cadherins and protocadherins, and contains different and unique cytoplasmic domains.

Suppression of erythropoiesis with little or no abnormality of leukocyte or platelet production.

Surface ligands, usually glycoproteins, that mediate cell-to-cell adhesion. Their functions include the assembly and interconnection of various vertebrate systems, as well as maintenance of tissue integration, wound healing, morphogenic movements, cellular migrations, and metastasis.

Ubiquitous macromolecules associated with the cell surface and extracellular matrix of a wide range of cells of vertebrate and invertebrate tissues. They are essential cofactors in cell-matrix adhesion processes, in cell-cell recognition systems, and in receptor-growth factor interactions.
