Table 3 Frequency of positivity of carcinoma cells for connexin43, MAD, Twist, vimentin, PCLγ, Tks5, and CXCR4 in paired primary tumors and metastasis of predominantly AC and SCC

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

Protein Primary tumor (%) Metastasis (%) Significance
Connexin 43 28.8 ± 34.2 25.4 ± 29.9 p 0.4
MAD 38.8 ± 30.1 32.2 ± 21.9 p 0.3
TWIST 23.8 ± 25.7 52.6 ± 27.6 p < 0.0001
Vimentin 2.1 ± 6.6 18.3 ± 30.7 p 0.005
PLCγ 17.6 ± 18.9 29.8 ± 20.1 p 0.02
Tks5 5.1 ± 6.3 14.3 ± 18.8 p 0.008
CXCR4 6.2 ± 12.1 4.7 ± 12.3 p 0.4
