Table 2 Expression of markers associated with migration in tissue microarrays for adenocarcinomas (325 cases), squamous cell carcinomas (142 cases), and large cell carcinomas (61 cases). For ECadherin, NCadherin, and pERK the percentages of negative as well as strong expression is given, for Mad, Twist, Vim, PLCγ, and Tks5 only positive reactions are recorded. For Connexin 43 a mean and standard deviation as well as the range is given

From: Bulk tumour cell migration in lung carcinomas might be more common than epithelial-mesenchymal transition and be differently regulated
