Tumours

tumour specific antigen

(Science: immunology, oncology) antigen on tumour cells detected by cell-mediated immunity. For virus transformed cells tSTA (unlike t antigen) is found to differ for different individual tumours induced by the same virus. May consist of fragments of T antigens exposed at the cell surface.

... - I don't think that the hypoxic cores tend to be the sources of metastatic cells, Well the reverse is the case. Metastatic cells can grow into tumours which can in turn outgrow their blood supplies and then the cores can become hypoxic. Nevertheless, it can work the other way around. For example, ...

Gene-sharing possible between viruses, protozoa & bacteria?

... the src gene. The discovery of this was a major milestone in our understanding of cancer, because the virus uses the (now mutated) gene to cause tumours. One consideration, though, is that viruses are so small that they generally can't carry much additional genetic material - the genome is packed ...
