A Bimodal Switch determines the Fate of Cancer Stem Cells

Just as we take decisions at each stage of our life that to which path we should follow, in the same way cells also takes decision in their life. An example of cells taking wrong decision is the cancer cell which decides to proliferate without any limit rather than to a particular number. Read more…
