Cancer Causes Cell Defense Protein to Switch Sides

The effects of p53 in cancer-associated fibroblasts on cancer cell migration: Cancer cells (magenta) migrate in the direction of cancer-associated fibroblasts (yellow) that express a non-mutated p53 gene (left); this migration slows down (center) when the p53 in the fibroblasts is silenced; when substances released by the cancer-associated fibroblasts are added to the laboratory dish, the migration is restored (right).
