E-Cad keeps cells tightly bound together but an intermediate amount of E-Cad can play role in aggressive tumours that are capable of metastasis as they play a role in facilitating highly diverse groups of cells to migrate from the original tumour

Institute for Research in Biomedicine-IRB says that the protein E-Cadherin is required for groups of diverse cells to migrate together, research shows. Tumors with intermediary levels of E-Cadherin generally have a poorer prognosis, and the scientists suggest that the phenomenon of heterogeneous cell migration may be related to this.  240 more words

PHD2 inhibition reduced metastasis by normalizing tumour vessels and by de-activating cancer-activated fibroblasts

VIB – Flanders Interuniversity Institute for Biotechnology says that reducing the expression of the PHD2 oxygen sensor impairs the ability of breast cancers to metastasize (spread) to other parts of the body, scientists have discovered. 187 more words
