Caveolin-1 (CAV1), a multifunctional protein, is the main constituent molecule of caveolae and represents a scaffolding molecule for several signaling molecules including epidermal growth factor receptor (PMID: 19641024). Several studies have implicated that a reduced expression of CAV1 was found in cancers including head and neck carcinoma (PMID: 19002186). However, other studies recognize CAV1 as a tumor promoter because CAV1 is overexpressed in various kinds of cancers, especially in oral cancer (PMID: 20558341). Recent study also show that CAV1 is involved in gastric Cancer (PMID: 25339030).
