Gene expression profiles associated with metastatic breast cancer


A gain-of-function retroviral cdna screen reveals that coco, a secreted antagonist of tgf-β ligands, induces solitary mammary carcinoma cells, which have disseminated to others sites and undergone an extended period of dormancy, to exit from dormancy at lung metastatic sites. Evidence indicates that coco awakens tumor progenitor cells that have extravasated into the lung by inhibiting stroma-derived bone morphogenetic proteins (bmp).
