TGFβ is a cytokine with many, often paradoxical, roles in cancer biology. Acting as a tumor suppressor, TGFβ exerts negative control on epithelial cell proliferation - a function that tumor cells must overcome in order to progress to malignant disease. On the other hand, TGFβ also acts as a pro-...
