Gene expression profiling of epithelial-mesenchymal transition in primary breast cancer cell culture.

BACKGROUND/AIM Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a process co-opted by cancer cells to invade and form metastases. In the present study we analyzed gene expression profiles of primary breast cancer cells in culture in order to highlight genes related to EMT. MATERIALS AND METHODS Microarray expression analysis of primary cells isolated from a… (More)
