Differential expression of the 18 kDa translocator protein (TSPO) by neoplastic and inflammatory cells in mouse tumors of breast cancer.


Tumor-associated inflammation has been linked to angiogenesis, metastasis and poor prognosis. The 18 kDa translocator protein (TSPO), also known as the peripheral benzodiazepine receptor (PBR), is expressed in activated immune cells such as macrophages, but also in a number of cancer cell lines such as those of breast cancer. There is an increasing clinical… (More)
