In vitro Flow Adhesion Assay for Analyzing Shear-resistant Adhesion of Metastatic Cancer Cells to Endothelial Cells
Authors:  Shin-Ae Kang, Sandra Bajana and Takemi Tanaka, date: 02/20/2016, view: 12247, Q&A: 1
Hematogenous metastasis is a primary cause of mortality from metastatic cancer. The shear-resistant adhesion of circulating tumor cells to the vascular endothelial cell surface under blood flow is an essential step in cell extravasation and further ...
