Proteomic analysis of colonic myofibroblasts and effect on colon cancer cell proliferation.


BACKGROUND The stromal microenvironment influences many steps of tumor progression through the elaboration of signals from myofibroblasts. The phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt pathway transduces signals initiated by growth factors and is involved in colonic epithelial proliferation. The purpose of this study was to determine (1) the influence of… (More)
