Stromal cells can have a significant impact on the carcinogenic process in adjacent epithelia. The role of transforming growth factor–β (TGF-β) signaling in such epithelial-mesenchymal interactions was determined by conditional inactivation of the TGF-β type II receptor gene in mouse fibroblasts (Tgfbr2fspKO). The loss of TGF-β responsiveness in fibroblasts resulted in intraepithelial neoplasia in prostate and invasive squamous cell carcinoma of the forestomach, both associated with an… Expand
