Augmented autocrine bone morphogenic protein (BMP) 7 signaling increases the metastatic potential of mouse breast cancer cells

Abstract

As malignant breast cancers progress, they acquire the ability to spread to other regions of the body, including bone and lung, but the molecular mechanism underlying the increase in metastatic potential is not fully understood. Here we studied murine 4T1E/M3 highly bone marrow metastatic breast cancer cells, which we established previously. These cells… (More)
