Breast Cancer Controlled By Genetic Master Switch

During breast cancer, some cancer cells will leave the tumor to invade into nearby tissues. In this new paper, Salk scientists find that the gene Sox10 is important in activating this local invasion. Left panel: Significant numbers of invasive cancer cells with Sox10 (red) in them can be found outside of the tumor (green cells, outlined). Right panel shows the invasive cells’ proximity to blood vessels (white). Credit: Credit: Salk Institute
