Understanding EMT: Mechanisms and Metastasis to MET
February 20, 2012 |
Epethelial Mesenchymal Transition (EMT) plays a critical role in cancer cells, but understanding of its mechanisms is incomplete. EMT causes cells to develop increased motility, invasiveness, and greater resistance to apoptosis. These changes make the cells more like stem cells, allowing them to self renew. This course provides a framework of the underlying molecular mechanisms while addressing stem cells, and cancer progression, cMET and their activity as anti-metastasis agents, and the Mesenchymal-Epethelial Transition (MET) as an essential process for tumor re-initiation, colonization, and metastasis.
