Classification of epithelial–mesenchymal transition phenotypes in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma is strongly associated with patient prognosis

Abstract

Epithelial–mesenchymal transition is characterized by a loss of cell adhesion and increased cell mobility due to cells gaining a mesenchymal phenotype. During the epithelial–mesenchymal transition process, tumor cells are expected to lose their epithelial phenotype and gradually and sequentially acquire a mesenchymal phenotype. Epithelial–mesenchymal… (More)
