This article presents a study which states that foveolin is abundantly and specifically expressed in superficial gastric epithelium, down regulated in gastric carcinoma and shows high evolutionary conservation. Through previous large scale gene expression profiling, a transcript was identified, which was abundant in normal stomach and down regulated in gastric cancer. Genes expressed at similar levels included gastrin, MUC5 and p52, which are important in gastric function. Foveolin's abundance in and specificity to native or metaplastic gastric epithelium, down regulation in gastric carcinomas and evolutionary conservation suggest that this gene is physiologically important in the stomach.

    Gastric carcinoma is one of the major causes of cancer mortality worldwide. Early detection results in excellent prognosis for patients with early cancer (EGC), whereas the prognosis of advanced cancer (AGC) patients remains poor. It is not clear whether EGC and AGC are molecularly distinct, and...

    Purposes: Human intelectin-1 (ITLN-1) is a novel identified galactose-binding lectin that is expressed in the colonic goblet cells. Since gastric adenocarcinomas can arise through a process of intestinalization, we speculate that ITLN-1 may be aberrantly expressed in gastric cancer. This study...
