Does loss of CD151 expression promote the metastasis of hypoxic colon cancer cells?

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review

Abstract

Intratumoral hypoxia increases invasion and metastasis through multiple mechanisms, including changes in gene expression that are mediated by hypoxia-inducible factor 1. In hypoxic colon cancer cells, hypoxia-inducible factor 1 inhibits the expression of CD151, a cell surface molecule that normally tethers epithelial cells to the basement membrane, which may promote metastasis.
