Actin Cytoskeleton in Cancer Progression and Metastasis (Part B), Volume 356
in the International Review of Cell and Molecular Biology
series, provides an overview on the roles of the actin cytoskeleton and its key structural regulators, including WASp, Paxillin, Myosin, Testin, L-Plastin and profilin, and in central processes underlying cancer progression and metastasis, such as changes in cell morphology and gene expression, acquisition of migratory and invasive capabilities, and evasion from the immune response. Specific chapters in this release cover Actin dynamics during tumor cell dissemination, Actin cytoskeleton remodeling during cancer cell migration, Cytoskeletal Mechanics Drives Heterogeneity in Epithelial Ovarian Cancer, and much more.
- Provides comprehensive and timely reviews on actin cytoskeleton and its regulators in cancer biology
- Offers a wide range of perspectives for basic and translational research
- Discusses opportunities and challenges for translating knowledge of tumor cell actin cytoskeleton into clinical applications
