E (epithelial)-cadherin is a 120 kDa transmembrane cell adhesion molecule. It has a significant function in intercellular adhesion of epithelial cells, the establishment of epithelial polarization, glandular differentiation and stratification. Down-regulation of E-cadherin expression has been observed in a number of carcinomas and is usually associated with advanced stage and progression. The antibody is a useful aid for classification of ductal breast carcinomas.
