Oncology Cell Signalling | Medical Animation


This medical animation shows that during the course of tumor progression, cancer cells acquire a number of characteristic alterations.

About tumor cell signalling

Cancer cells characteristic alterations include the capacities to proliferate independently of exogenous growth-promoting or growth-inhibitory signals, to invade surrounding tissues and metastasize to distant sites, to elicit an angiogenic response, and to evade mechanisms that limit cell proliferation, such as apoptosis and replicative senescence. These properties reflect alterations in the cellular signalling pathways that in normal cells control cell proliferation, motility, and survival.
