The Role Of Bone Sialoproteins In Breast Cancer Osseous Metastasis

The Role Of Bone Sialoproteins In Breast Cancer Osseous Metastasis The ability of certain human breast cancer cells (HBC) to metastasize to bone may be related to cellular expression of the small acidic sialoproteins: osteoprotein (OPN); and bone sialoprotein (BSP). Expression of these proteins may promote primary tumor cell invasion, and/or the development of bone […]
