    ..Moreover, similar roles were expected for the genes in the process by which human melanoma cells metastasize. ..

    ..Thus, the present results not only support the hypothesis that TSLC1 is a tumor suppressor of NSCLC but also suggest that preserved integrity of TSLC1 may contribute to less invasive phenotypes of lepidic growth tumor cells. ..

    ..These observations support the notion that mechanisms promoting the genetic instability of tumors could also aid tumor progression from the nonmetastatic to the metastatic state. ..
