      Atomic Force Microscopy Probing of Cancer Cells and Tumor Microenvironment Components 

      Stylianou, A.; Stylianopoulos, T. (2016)
      Cancer cells have different characteristics from normal cells in terms of morphology, cell–cell interactions, cytoskeleton organization, cell growth rates, and cell-extracellular matrix interactions. Although the clarification ...

      Comparative developmental anatomy of the murine and human definitive placentae 

      Georgiades, Pantelis; Fergyson-Smith, A. C.; Burton, G. J. (2002)
      The placenta of eutherian mammals is a remarkable biological structure. It is composed of both zygote-derived and maternal cells, and mediates the complex interactions between the mother and the fetus that are necessary ...

      Roles for genomic imprinting and the zygotic genome in placental development 

      Georgiades, Pantelis; Watkins, M.; Burton, G. J.; Ferguson-Smith, A. C. (2001)
      The placenta contains several types of fetomaternal interfaces where zygote-derived cells interact with maternal cells or maternal blood for the promotion of fetal growth and viability. The genetic factors regulating the ...
