The study of mice, in the 11th January issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has been published, that eliminating the DAB2IP scaffolding had human carcinoma cells to change from epithelial cells to mesenchymal cells – a hallmark of metastatic cancer without informing your doctor . Cells undergo an epithelial to mesenchymal transition experience biological changes that and and spontaneously throughout the body make, said Dr. Jer – Tsong Hsieh, director of the Jean H. & John T. Walker Jr. Center could be said Dr. Hsieh identifying the DAB2IP protein in human cells – for Research in Urologic Oncology at UT Southwestern and the study’s senior author By restoring DAB2IP function in cancer cells in mice reversed we metastasize its ability to change and. serve as biomarkers to help physicians patients who might have more aggressive, metastatic forms of prostate cancer.

Other UT Southwestern researchers involved in this study were Crystal Gore and Michael Long, research technicians, Dr. Jun Liu, postdoctoral researcher; Rey – Chen Pong, Senior Research Associate, Ralph Mason, professor of radiology, Guiyang Hao, postdoctoral researcher; Dr. Wareef Kabbani, assistant professor of pathology, Dr. Xiankai Sun, assistant professor of radiology in the Advanced Imaging research Center, David Boothman, professor of radiation oncology and pharmacology and associate director of translational research in the Harold C.
