Publisher's Summary

Some helper cells may smooth the way for cancer cells to move, a new study suggests. Cells called cancer-associated fibroblasts arrange a normal meshwork of fibers into straight tracks, cell biologist Begum Erdogan of Vanderbilt University in Nashville and colleagues reported December 13. Fibroblasts are cells that help construct connective tissue. Erdogan and colleagues examined one type of fiber built of a protein called fibronectin.
