Tissue formation critically depends on the appropriate assignment of specialised cell fates and behaviours. The traditional perspective of these competitive decisions is that cells first perceive extrinsic signalling cues, decide their fate and then act appropriately (i.e.

Applications accepted all year round
Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.

There is much research into trying to regain control of cell proliferation or cell death (apoptosis) in cancer. Different strategies exist to do this and a multitude of individual receptor targets are being identified in tumour cell lines and primary cells.
