A unique feature of this TCDD-induced signaling is that it does not involve the actions of AhR but happens through increased calcium levels in cells and activation of calcium responsive factors. A net result of signaling cascade is slowing down of cellular apoptosis, improved cell proliferation and tumor cell metastasis. Taken together, this scholarly research describes a novel mechanism of TCDD-induced tumor progression and emergence of metastatic cancer cells. TCDD may be the most toxic compound in the dioxin family. Formed simply because a by-product during waste incineration, paper, chemical and pesticide manufacturing, it was the toxic ingredient in Agent Orange and shut the Love Canal in Niagara Falls.Langer, a pioneer in cells recipient and engineering of The Economist 2012 Advancement Award in Bioscience.
