50 CpG island methylation of the FHIT gene is correlated with loss of gene expression in lung and breast cancer.
There were no statistically significant differences between the expression of gastric cancer cell proteins: FHIT, p-catenin, y-catenin, cathepsin B, EGF, HER-2, MMP-9, MCM-2, Bak, Bax, BclXL, p53, FasL and Procaspase 3, depending on the classification according to Lauren (Table 2).
Methods: Truncated structures of FHIT were screened to reveal critical sections engaging in FHIT interaction.

Other topics considered are cell cycle control proteins in human breast cancer, primary roles of the retinoblast protein family in cell cycle regulation, and FHIT and cancer initiating cells.
They analyzed the behavior of two tumor-suppressing genes, p16 and FHIT, that are silenced or damaged in the early stages of cancer development, and tracked whether the genes were silenced by methylation, the attachment of a chemical methyl group to an atom or molecule, which in this case, eventually leads to the function of a gene shutting down.
For example, they found strong correlations in the inhibition (promoter methylation) of tumor suppressor genes pl6 and FHIT in 1,774 tissue samples.
