Macropinocytosis: Is this the Target of Future Cancer Research?

Macropinocytosis is a cellular process that occurs in cancer cells. Even though this process may help cancer as it spreads through the body, new research also gives hope for treatment. What is Macropinocytosis? All cells, including cancer cells, have a membrane that serves as a protective layer. The membrane has to be intact because the cell is full of fluid.

Cancer Cells Prefer a Safe Pathway with the Least Resistance

Even though cancer spreads quickly it is lazy in its choice of migration route. According to a new study migrating cancer cells prefer paths of least resistance. Such cellular behavior is not just a characteristic of cancer cells. Other metabolic and cellular processes like wound healing and inflammation follow the same paths. The researchers suggest that energy costs and inter-cellular
