Cancer stem cells (CSCs) represent a small subset of cancer cell populations that possess characteristics associated with normal stem cells. They have the ability to self-renew, and are able to generate diverse tumor cells and account for metastases. Therefore, CSCs are widely accepted as potential mediators of therapeutic resistance and novel targets for anti-cancer treatments. Recent progress has highlighted the significance of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) process in CSC formation… CONTINUE READING
