Tight junctions (TJs) of epithelia are responsible for integrity of polarized epithelial cells. It is now well established that the deregulation of their functions and expressions contribute to initiation and progression of cancer through activation of cytoskeleton machinery. The aim of this study was to examine the expression level of two genes encoding tight junction-associated proteins of Jam2 and Jam3 in gastric adenocarcinoma and compare with normal gastric tissues dissected from same patients. Significant difference of expression level for these genes was observed between tumor and adjacent normal tissues. Also, we analyzed the expression level of actin filament-associated protein gene that appears to be a downstream factor of JAM2 and JAM3. The expression level of this gene was significantly higher in tumor tissues. Some correlations between the expression level of these genes with each other and with pathological features were observed. These data brought new evidences for the role of these three genes in progression of gastric adenocarcinoma.
