CDH1 on 16q22.1 encodes E-cadherin which functions in intercellular adhesion. E-cadherin is involved in transmitting chemical signals and controlling cell maturation and movement, and acts as a tumor suppressor. CDH1 is rare in this tumor type and is found in approximately 1% of glioblastomas. The CDH1 A403T variant has not been characterized in the literature and therefore has an unknown effect on protein function and is best classified as a variant of uncertain significance (VUS). The clinical significance of CDH1 in glioblastoma is unknown and its clinicopathologic effect remains to be further elucidated.
