Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition and cancer stem(-like) cells in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma
Cancer Letters, 08/03/2012
Chen C et al. – Epithelial–to–mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a key event in metastasis and increasing evidence suggests a link between EMT and cancer stem(–like) cells (CSCs). MicroRNAs regulate multiple cellular processes including EMT and have been implicated in a CSC phenotype.
