Abstract

The epithelial to mesenchymal transitions (EMT) plays essential roles in many physiological and pathological processes such as embryonic development and cancer progression. Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) as an inducer of EMT that causes complex changes in cell morphology and adhesion properties.
