A new molecular mechanism regulates invasiveness and metastasis in carcinomas

Loss of E-cadherin is a key initial step in the invasiveness of primary epithelial tumors and their eventual metastasis. The Group of Transcriptional Regulation at IDIBAPS has identified a new molecular mechanism regulating E-cadherin that could be involved in the initial steps of tumor invasion into surrounding normal tissue and their eventual metastasis.
