Polysialylated neural cell adhesion molecules expressed in human pituitary tumors and related to extrasellar invasion.
Expression and secretion of neural cell adhesion molecules by human pituitary adenomas.
Currently, there are few reports in the literature regarding the role of cell adhesion proteins, such as E-cadherin (ECAD), and neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) in pituitary adenomas, as well as of SLUG, which is an important transcriptional regulator of ECAD.

Neural cell adhesion molecule 1 (NCAM1; see Figure 1 for a comparison of the structure of this CAM to other CAMs discussed in subsequent sections) is expressed across many cell types, including neurons, glial cells, cardiac muscle cells, and skeletal muscle cells, with as many as 27 distinct isoforms generated by alternative RNA splicing .
