Aberrant symmetric proliferation of stem-like tumor cells influences tumor malignancy in glioblastoma

B. Campos, A. Baader, C. Herold-Mende & A. Unterberg
Objective: Stem-like tumor cells endowed with enhanced self-renewal capacity are believed to drive tumor growth in malignant gliomas. So far a variety of surrogate markers has been proposed to characterize and enrich these cells, emphasizing the need for devising new isolation methods based on common[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
