CD44 molecule (Indian blood group) (CD44) is a gene that encodes a protein that functions in cell-cell interactions, cell adhesion, cell migration, lymphocyte activation, recirculation and homing, hematopoiesis, and tumor metastasis. Missense mutations, synonymous mutations, frameshift deletions, and nonsense mutations are observed in cancers such as stomach cancer, endometrial cancer, and lung cancer.
