Latest Epithelial-mesenchymal transition Stories
Avian embryos could join the list of model organisms used to study a specific type of cell migration called epiboly, thanks to the results of a study published this month in the journal Developmental Dynamics.
A biological pathway that transforms normal cells into aggressive tumors has been discovered by researchers at Cleveland Clinic's Lerner Research Institute.
Researchers at Mayo Clinic in Florida have found that a molecule long believed to be a beneficial tumor suppressor â€” and thus a potential cancer drug target â€” appears to act as an oncogene in some lethal brain tumors.
Researchers at the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center zero in on how breast tumor cells break free and start to spread
Reporting in Nature Cell Biology, researchers describe the discovery of a specific protein called disabled-2 (Dab2) that switches on the process that releases cancer cells from the original tumor and allows the cells to spread and develop into new tumors in other parts of the body.
Circulating metastatic breast cancer cells can lose their epithelial receptors, a process that enables them to travel through the bloodstream undetected, according to research from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
Alcohol consumption has long been linked to cancer and its spread, but the underlying mechanism has never been clear.
Although alcohol consumption has been linked to colon and breast cancer, exactly how this occurs remains unclear.
Patients with positive epithelial-mesenchymal transition markers have lowest survival rate.
Protein allows cells altered by the oncoprotein ErbB2/HER2 to escape their bonds.
