Epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a highly conserved programme of events essential for normal development. As it underpins cell plasticity, migration and invasion in a number of settings it is an attractive concept to apply to the malignant phenotype. Much is known about the molecular events regulating EMT in a number of model organisms, including Drosophila, sea urchin, zebrafish, xenopus and the chick. It is increasingly apparent that EMT is a highly conserved process, and that discoveries made in these systems provide excellent insights into the understanding of the role of EMT in human malignancies.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
