Abstract:Inappropriate activation of the IGF (insulin-like growth factor) system has been implicated in the growth and progression of a number of tumor types. Recent evidence indicates a possible role for the IGF system in modulating/mediating tumor cell response to hypoxia, a common occurrence in solid tumors, and particularly in malignant gliomas, causing tumor cells either to die, or to mount a pleiotropic adaptive response that is mainly orchestrated through activation of the hypoxia-inducible transcription factor …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
