How microtentacles help tumor cells metastasize


How can circulating tumor cells form metastasis? In this video by Kathi Kaiser, learn how the detached tumor cells form little tentacles called microtentacles. These microtentacles help the cells to attach to other cells and surfaces. The estimation of the formation and the mechanism of microtentacles can help to find new cancer therapies and rescue many lives.


Kathi Kaiser is a student in the Cell Physics Master at the University of Strasbourg, France.
