Abstract

The development of solid tumors is regulated by dynamic interactions between evolving neoplastic cells and their microenvironment. Luo et al. (2007) recently demonstrated that tumor-infiltrating immune cells expressing RANKL induce activation and nuclear localization of IKKalpha in prostatic epithelial tumor cells. This leads to repression of maspin, a critical suppressor of metastasis, and thus commits malignant prostatic epithelial cells to a metastatic fate.
