Breaking the metastasis cycle: Is ROS-activated β-globin expression required for CTC survival?

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are chemical molecules containing a highly reactive oxygen molecule. These molecules are formed as by-products of cellular metabolism, but also serve intracellularly as signaling molecules. ROS examples include peroxides, superoxide, hydroxyl radical and singlet oxygen. When present within cells in significant amounts, ROS can be indicators of oxidative cellular stress, and… Read article →

New webinar: HER2, CTCs and tumor stemness

About 20–30% of breast cancer tumors overexpress the oncogene human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), which – if not treated with a targeted anti-HER2 regimen – leads to higher aggressiveness and mortality. Recently, a number of studies have shown that expression of HER2 in circulating tumor cells (CTCs) varies compared to expression in primary tumors…. Read article →
