The role of HBx in the development of HCC with particular emphasis on HBx mutants and their putative targets is addressed, and HBx mediated transcriptional transactivation and signaling pathways may be a major determinant.
Understanding the cell survival mechanism of anoikis-resistant cancer cells during different steps of metastasis
Comprehensive analysis of the molecular and functional biology of anoikis resistance in cancer cells will provide crucial details about cancer metastasis, enabling us to identify novel therapeutic targets against cancer cell dissemination and ultimately secondary tumor formation.
