Storming the gates: Otey lab research probes how pancreatic cancers metastasize
Researchers in the lab of Carol Otey, PhD, found that the protein palladin enhances the ability of cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) to assemble organelles known as invadopodia to break down the barriers between cells and create pathways for tumors to spread throughout the body. Findings published in the March 25 issue of Oncogene.
