Actin Cytoskeleton in Cancer Progression and Metastasis - Part C. 1st ed. (Book)
- Cytoskeleton and Cancer Progression
Actin Cytoskeleton in Cancer Progression and Metastasis - Part C, Volume 358 in the International Review of Cell and Molecular Biology series, provides an overview of the roles of the actin cytoskeleton and some of its key structural regulators, including WASp, Paxillin, Myosin, Testin, L-Plastin and profilin, in central processes underlying cancer progression and metastasis, such as changes in cell morphology and gene expression, acquisition of migratory and invasive capabilities, and evasion from the immune response. New chapters cover Actin isoforms in cancer, Actin cytoskeleton regulators at invadopodia, Cytoskeletal Mechanics Drives Heterogeneity in Epithelial Ovarian Cancer, and more.
