#ALT# Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition (EMT) in Neuroscience and Cancer

During EMT, epithelial cells become motile after undergoing defined molecular changes. This process is reversible. This article provides a comprehensive guide to the tools needed in the study of epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) in both neuroscience and cancer.
