Summaries Loss of membranous E-cadherin expression was significantly correlated with aberrant locations of -catenin. Patients with loss of E-cadherin expression and aberrant locations of -catenin showed higher rates of LN or distant metastasis than those with normal membranous staining.
Summaries Dkk-1 treatment inhibited PTC cell survival and rescued the aberrant expression of -catenin from cytoplasm to membrane. Dkk-1 also recovered the loss of membranous E-cadherin expression in PTC cells, inhibiting cell migration and invasion. Xenotransplantation of BHP10-3 cells overexpressing Dkk-1 showed delayed tumorigenesis with relocations of the aberrant expression of -catenin and E-cadherin.
Conclusions Dkk-1 might have a therapeutic potential in PTC through regulation of -catenin/E-cadherin system
