Conversely, over expression of the FVB allele increased the numbers of pulmonary metastases. Analysis of human tumors also demonstrated that over expression of SIPA1 is associated with metastatic prog...

Measuring disseminated cancer cells in bone marrow - valuable tool for detecting early breast cancer metastasis
