Molecular Biology Research Building (MBRB), Auditorium, 900 S. Ashland Ave. United States + Google Map

Ekrem Emrah Er, PhD Assistant Professor, Department of Physiology and Biophysics University of Illinois at Chicago   ABSTRACT Emergence of life-threatening metastases in vital secondary organs requires disseminated tumor cells to activate mechano-sensitive transcription factors. We found that a subset of these transcription factors that are necessary for cancer cell dissemination paradoxically suppresses overt metastatic outgrowth. Specifically, we found that overexpression of MRTFA and B, which regulate the actin cytoskeleton and cellular migration, compromises cancer cell survival within the metastatic…
