CLDN18A2 is the stomach isoform of CLDN18. CLDN18 is a protein that in humans is encoded by CLDN18 gene. It belongs to the group of claudins, a large family of proteins which form tight junction strands in epithelial cells. Since claudin-18 (Cldn18) is overexpressed in precursor lesion PanIN and pancreatic duct carcinoma, it serves as a diagnostic marker and a target of immunotherapy.
