Dr. Anitha Shenoy’s Newest Publication in Molecular & Cellular Oncology
Anitha Shenoy, PhD, Assistant Professor in Pharmacology, CHSU College of Pharmacy, is one of the contributing authors in an article, Relevance of Epithelial-to-Pericyte Transition in Cancer published in Molecular & Cellular Oncology Volume 2, Issue 2, 2015.
The relevance of epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in cancer is still under debate. Recently, we reported that EMT bestows key pericyte properties on cancer cells and may thus represent epithelial-topericyte transition (EPT). Carcinoma cells undergo EPT to stabilize blood vessels and fuel primary tumor growth. Association of EPT cancer cells with vascular niches may also promote resistance to therapy.
