Sakamori R et al., CDC42 inhibition suppresses progression of incipient intestinal tumors. Our results suggest that early-stage mutant intestinal epithelial cells must recruit the pleiotropic functions of Cdc42 for malignant progression, suggesting its relevance as a biomarker and therapeutic target for selective CRC intervention.
Have a great semester!
