Membrane Alterations in Neoplasia

  • D. James Morré


Since the 1960s, considerable attention has been paid to alterations of cellular membranes associated with cell transformation and malignancy. Many studies have been directed at a search for significant alterations particularly at the cell surface* and, more specifically, in the plasma membrane. However, during malignancy, membrane alterations are not limited to the plasma membrane. They have also been demonstrated in intracellular membranes. Nevertheless, since the plasma membrane plays a key role in cellular growth control, differentiation, invasion, and metastasis, it continues to be the focus of much attention in cancer research.
