New insights in how tumors metastasise
The growth of cancerous tumors is affected by the growth factor TGF-beta. It both suppresses and stimulates tumor development, but it has not been understood how this happens. A new study led by Carl-Henrik Heldin, Uppsala Universitet/SciLifeLab and Chair of the SciLifeLab Board, reveals important details behind this process. The study was published in Science Signaling.
