As shown in Figure 4, after the treatment with gemcitabine, the expressions of TIMP-1 (3.13 fold), TIMP-2 (3.41 fold) and CDH1 (1.66 fold) genes were significantly elevated compared with the control group.

The 2012 procedure may have saved his life as post-op tests showed Dan, carrying a faulty CDH1 gene, had stomach cancer despite showing no symptoms.
The resulting cDNA samples were diluted to a final concentration of 250 ng/mL for qRT-PCR of ECAD (CDH1) and SLUG (SNA/2), and of 100 ng/[micro]L for qRT-PCR of NCAM (NCAM1).
We first developed and analytically validated 3 multiplex RT-qPCR assays for the quantitative determination of (a) Epithelial markers: CK-19 (KRT19), EpCAM, E-cadherin (CDH1), and HMBS (reference gene); (b) Stem cell markers: PSCA, ALDH1A1, CD133 (PROM1), and HPRT1 (reference gene); and (c) EMT markers: TWIST1, Vimentin (VIM), N-cadherin (CDH2), and B2M (reference gene).
It is testified that some major genes are actually involved in the malignant transformation of ovarian endometriosis; among these contributing genes, epigenetic inactivation of Runt-related transcription factor 3 (RUNX3) [18], human mutL homolog 1 (hMLH1) [19], E-cadherin (CDH1) [20], Ras-association domain family of gene 2 (RASSF2) [21], and P16 and phosphatase and tensin homolog deleted on chromosome 10 (PTEN) [22] by promoter hypermethylation was well observed; however, long interspersed nuclear element-1 (LINE-1) [23] and syncytin-1 [24] were hypo-methylated and activated.
To this end, we explored on "EMBL-EBI Expression Atlas" database the expression of PLXNC1 in HCC cell lines along with the epithelial marker CDH1 and the mesenchymal markers PRKCA and VIM genes.

Indeed, in module 13, in which the most enriched BP was "adherent junction assembly," we observed a reduced expression of molecules involved in cell adhesion including CDH1 (epithelial cadherin), CTNNA1, VCL, and CTTN, a molecule expressed on the apical surface of the polarized epithelium.
The four genes CDH1, MYC, SOS2, and CDKN1A are obtained from the prostate cancer network.
Additionally, because of a potential genetic correlation between diffuse gastric carcinoma and early-onset lobular breast carcinoma [3], we also performed a genetic evaluation and searched for CDH1 germline mutations, but no genetic abnormalities were identified.
