The article presents information on a study which analyzes the expression of chemokine receptors (CR) on circulating tumor cells (CTC). It is said that CR are potential drug targets and they may help in predicting organ-specific metastases and cancer treatment. In this study, blood samples from patients with metastatic carcinoma (MC) or melanoma (MM) were analyzed with the help of flow cytometry.

    Introduction. Previous studies have shown that stromal-derived factor-1 (CXCL12) and its receptor, CXCR4, play a crucial role in metastasis of various tumors. Similarly, it has been cleared that CXCR4 is expressed on the cell surface of gastric cancers. However, nuclear expression of CXCR4 and...

    Cytometric studies utilizing flow cytometry or multi-well culture plate fluorometry are often limited by a deficit in temporal resolution and a lack of single cell consideration. Unfortunately, many cellular processes, including signaling, motility, and molecular transport, occur transiently...
