We Contain Multitudes

The Protean Face of Retinoblastoma

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The precise cellular characteristics of retinoblastoma have long been debated. In this issue of Cancer Cell, McEvoy et al. reveal that retinoblastomas are highly homogeneous at the molecular level and coexpress genes characteristic of retinal progenitors and various different mature retinal cell types, while ultrastructurally resembling amacrine cells.
