The somatostatin receptor subtype 2 (sst2) behaves as a tumor suppressor when expressed and stimulated by its ligand somatostatin in pancreatic cancer. We reveal a mechanism underlying oncosuppressive action of sst2, whereby this inhibitory receptor upregulates the expression of the secreted angioinhibitory factor thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1), as demonstrated(More)
Given the failure of chemo- and biotherapies to fight advanced pancreatic cancer, one major challenge is to identify critical events that initiate invasion. One priming step in epithelia carcinogenesis is the disruption of epithelial cell anchorage to the basement membrane which can be provided by hemidesmosomes (HDs). However, the existence of HDs in(More)
