Studying How Mast Cell Tumors Spread
Mast cell tumors (MCTs) are the most common skin tumors in dogs, and they are often fatal. Previous studies in dogs with aggressive tumors found that the small microRNA (miR-9) expressed in those tumors was more likely to spread and kill affected dogs. This study provides a molecular framework for understanding how tumors with miR-9 spread.
