Discerning lymphatics from blood vessels using lineage-specific markers has advanced our understanding of tumor lymphangiogenesis. Many studies have demonstrated that the newly formed lymphatics are the result of a dynamic and complex interplay between lymphatic endothelium, tumor cells, secreted growth factors, and inhibitors in the tumor microenvironment… CONTINUE READING
