Tumor-associated Endo180 requires stromal-derived LOX to promote metastatic prostate cancer cell migration on human ECM surfaces (2015)
Journal Article
Caley, M. P., King, H., Shah, N., Wang, K., Rodriguez-Teja, M., Gronau, J. H., …Sturge, J. (2016). Tumor-associated Endo180 requires stromal-derived LOX to promote metastatic prostate cancer cell migration on human ECM surfaces. Clinical & experimental metastasis, 33(2), 151-165. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10585-015-9765-7

The diverse composition and structure of extracellular matrix (ECM) interfaces encountered by tumor cells at secondary tissue sites can influence metastatic progression. Extensive in vitro and in vivo data has confirmed that metastasizing tumor cells...
