“A three-dimensional engineered tumour for spatial snapshot analysis of cell metabolism and phenotype in hypoxic gradients” Nature Materials

Darren Rodenhizer, Edoardo Gaude, Dan Cojocari, Radhakrishnan Mahadevan, Christian Frezza, Bradly G. Wouters & Alison P. McGuigan Nature Materials (2015) Full Text on ResearchGate Abstract The profound metabolic reprogramming that occurs in cancer cells has been investigated primarily in two-dimensional cell cultures, which fail to recapitulate spatial aspects of cell-to-cell interactions as well as tissue gradients present in three-dimensional tumours. Here, we ... Read More
