Studying The Role Of Cell Competition In Tumor Progression Via A Two-Dimensional Vertex Model, Bixi Kang

Theses and Dissertations

Tumor progression fate relies on the cell competition between tumorous cells and the surrounding regular cells. Studies on the Drosophila wing imaginal disc illustrate that cell competition can act either as a tumor suppressing or as a tumor promoting mechanism. However, how cell competition alters its role in tumor development via underlying molecular mechanisms as well as the role played by mechanical effects is still poorly understood. Here we study the role of cell competition in the early stage of tumor progression, using a simulation code of epithelial tissue (TiFoSi), which allows to include feedback between tissue growth, mechanics and ...
