    • Notch signalling in cancer stem cells 

      Bolós Fernández, Victoria; Medina Villaamil, Vanessa; Aparicio Gallego, Guadalupe; Díaz Prado, Silvia; Grande Pulido, Enrique (Springer, 2009)
      [Abstract] A new theory about the development of solid tumours is emerging from the idea that solid tumours, like normal adult tissues, contain stem cells (called cancer stem cells) and arise from them. Genetic mutations ...
