Abstract

Transitions between epithelial and mesenchmal phenotypes play critical roles in normal development and cancer progression. In this issue of Cancer Cell, Evdokimova et al. demonstrate that YB-1 regulates epithelial-mesenchyme transition (EMT) by inducing cap-independent translation of mRNAs encoding EMT-promoting factors and suppressing cap-dependent translation of mRNAs encoding growth-promoting factors.
