This review is dedicated to E-cadherin, a calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion molecule with pivotal roles in epithelial cell behavior, tissue formation, and carcinogenesis. We summarize the structure of the E-cadherin, its role in the development of the body and in the carcinogenesis. The structure of the E-cadherin/β-catenin/αE-catenin complex and its relationship with the actin cytoskeleton are described in detail. The role of E-cadherin in the development of some infectious diseases, the function of E-cadherin as both a tumor suppressor and a promoter of tumor dissemination, its influence on signal transduction pathways in cells are highlighted. Particular attention is paid to the expression of E-cadherin in Helicobacter pylori infection and in tumor tissue in gastric cancer.
