Özet

BackgroundProcoagulant full-length tissue factor (flTF) and its minimally coagulant alternatively spliced isoform (asTF), promote breast cancer (BrCa) progression via different mechanisms. We previously showed that flTF and asTF are expressed by BrCa cells, resulting in autoregulation in a cancer milieu. BrCa cells often express hormone receptors such as the estrogen receptor (ER), leading to the formation of hormone-regulated cell populations.
