Extracellular Matrix Proteomics and Tumor Metastasis

Researchers have known for some time that the tissue surrounding a primary tumor exerts a strong influence on survival and onward progression of cancer. Extracellular matrix (ECM) is a key component in this microenvironment, via its support of the spread and proliferation of tumors. In addition, ECM can form a tissue barrier to chemotherapeutics. Naba and colleagues (2014) Read the rest of this article
