Actin Cytoskeleton in Cancer Progression and Metastasis – Part C, (PDF) in the International Review of Cell and Molecular Biology series, offers an overview of the roles of the actin cytoskeleton and some of its main structural regulators, including WASp, Myosin, Paxillin, Testin, L-Plastin, and profilin, in central processes triggering cancer progression and metastasis, like changes in cell morphology and gene expression, acquisition of migratory and aggressive capabilities, and evasion from the immune response. New chapters include Actin isoforms in cancer, Actin cytoskeleton regulators at invadopodia, Cytoskeletal Mechanics Drives Heterogeneity in Epithelial Ovarian Cancer, and more.
