Abstract

The presence of fibroblasts with nuclear β-catenin in tumours is a good prognostic indicator, although in the context of tissue culture models these cells can increase the growth and metastatic potential of cancer cells. These apparently paradoxical observations underline the complexity of epithelial-stromal signalling within tumours and highlight an area for further study.
