Slit-Robo Signaling Links to Ras Activity to Suppress Metastasis and Is Associated with Time-to-Progression in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors Abstract #1539

Introduction: mRNA signatures of distinct metastatic phenotypes of pancreatic NETs (pNETs) exhibit differences in several components of the Slit-Robo axon guidance system.
Aim(s): We aimed at delineating the role of Slit-Robo signaling for tumor progression in pNETs.
Materials and methods: Expression of Slit2 and Robo1 on human pNET tissues was determined by IHC and qPCR. Migration and colony formation as well as metastasis in mice were evaluated as read-outs.
