Supplementary Material

Supplementary information contains 5 supplementary figures (Figure S1 to S5) and 4 supplementary tables (Table S1 to S4). Figure S1 and S2 show the alterations of all 27 CDHs in all breast cancer samples and TNBC samples from TCGA respectively. Figure S3 shows alteration of top 24 genes while Figure S4 demonstrates alterations of 7 stem cell-related transcription factors in breast cancer samples used for analysis. FigureS5 shows representative data of Figure 3C. Table S1 and S2 demonstrate the correlation of altered CDH1 and expressions of ESR1, PGR and HER2 or stem cell-related transcription factors respectively. Table S3 lists genes enriched with altered CDHs in breast cancer samples. Table S4 describes correlation between stem cell-related transcription factors and ESR1, PGR and HER2 status in breast cancer using RPPA dataset.
