Preparation of a User-Defined Peptide Gel for Controlled 3D Culture Models of Cancer and Disease (2020)
Journal Article
Ashworth, J. C., Morgan, R. L., Lis-Slimak, K., Jones, S., Spence, K., Slater, C. E., …Merry, C. L. R. (2020). Preparation of a User-Defined Peptide Gel for Controlled 3D Culture Models of Cancer and Disease. Journal of Visualized Experiments, 166, https://doi.org/10.3791/61710

There is a growing awareness that cells grown in 3D better model in vivo behavior than those grown in 2D. In this protocol, we describe a simple and tunable 3D hydrogel, suitable for culturing cells and tissue in a setting that matches their native e...

Cancer reversion with oocyte extracts is mediated by cell cycle arrest and induction of tumour dormancy (2018)
Journal Article
Saad, N., Alberio, R., Johnson, A. D., Emes, R. D., Giles, T. C., Clarke, P., …Allegrucci, C. (2018). Cancer reversion with oocyte extracts is mediated by cell cycle arrest and induction of tumour dormancy. Oncotarget, 9(22), 16008-16027. https://doi.org/10.18632/oncotarget.24664

Inducing stable control of tumour growth by tumour reversion is an alternative approach to cancer treatment when eradication of the disease cannot be achieved. The process requires re-establishment of normal control mechanisms that are lost in canc...

Cyclin A1 and P450 aromatase promote metastatic homing and growth of stem-like prostate cancer cells in the bone marrow (2016)
Journal Article
Miftakhova, R., Hedblom, A., Semenas, J., Robinson, B. D., Simoulis, A., Malm, J., …Persson, J. L. (2016). Cyclin A1 and P450 aromatase promote metastatic homing and growth of stem-like prostate cancer cells in the bone marrow. Cancer Research, 76(8), 2453-2464. https://doi.org/10.1158/0008-5472.CAN-15-2340

Bone metastasis is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in prostate cancer (PCa). While cancer stem-like cells have been implicated as a cell of origin for PCa metastases, the pathways which enable metastatic development at distal sites remain...
