- Targeting Î±vÎ²3 and Î±vÎ²5 inhibits photon-induced hypermigration of malignant glioma cells. // Radiation Oncology;2011, Vol. 6 Issue 1, p132
The article reports on a study conducted to analyze the modifiability of photon-altered glioma cell motility by integrin inhibition. The study would also describe the mechanisms underlying increased glioma cell migration through photon irradiation. The study results revealed that peripheral...
- Ionizing radiation induces a motile phenotype in human carcinoma cells in vitro through hyperactivation of the TGF-beta signaling pathway. Carl, Cedric; Flindt, Anne; Hartmann, Julian; Dahlke, Markus; Rades, Dirk; Dunst, Jürgen; Lehnert, Hendrik; Gieseler, Frank; Ungefroren, Hendrik // Cellular & Molecular Life Sciences;Jan2016, Vol. 73 Issue 2, p427
Radiotherapy, a major treatment modality against cancer, can lead to secondary malignancies but it is uncertain as to whether tumor cells that survive ionizing radiation (IR) treatment undergo epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and eventually become invasive or metastatic. Here, we have...

- Protective Bystander Effects Simulated with the State-Vector Model. Sch�llnberger, Helmut; Eckl, Peter M. // Dose-Response;2007, Vol. 5 Issue 3, p187
Apoptosis induced in non-hit bystander cells is an important biological mechanism which operates after exposure to low doses of low-LET radiation. This process was implemented into a deterministic multistage model for in vitro neoplastic transformation: the State-Vector Model (SVM). The new...
- A Role for Bioelectric Effects in the Induction of Bystander Signals by Ionizing Radiation? Mothersill, C.; Moran, G.; McNeill, F.; Gow, M. D.; Denbeigh, J.; Prestwich, W.; Seymour, C. B. // Dose-Response;2007, Vol. 5 Issue 3, p214
The induction of "bystander effects" i.e. effects in cells which have not received an ionizing radiation track, is now accepted but the mechanisms are not completely clear. Bystander effects following high and low LET radiation exposure are accepted but mechanisms are still not understood. There...
- Models of cell locomotion. Baumgaertner, A.; Sambeth, R. // AIP Conference Proceedings;2000, Vol. 501 Issue 1, p112
The motion of single biological cells is a fascinating phenomena which has puzzled scientists for many decades. The current physical concepts of cell motility are reviewed and the recent progress of our understanding concerning the role of polymerization processes are summarized. In particular,...
- Glioblastoma: Looking at the Currently Marketed Sigma-1 Agonists and Antagonists. Kast, Richard E. // Neoplasia;Aug2007, Vol. 9 Issue 8, p689
A letter to the editor is presented in response to an article about the role of sigma-1 agonist 4-IBP  in the reduction of the motility of glioblastoma cells.
