  • In this context, skeletal muscle exerts a dominant effect upon metastatic cells, recruiting them into the myogenic program resulting in the observed rarity of metastatic tumors in skeletal muscle of humans The effect of muscle cells upon metastatic cells can be explained in part by the presence of diffusible signals secreted by muscle into the local milieu that act specifically on metastatic cells and not on non-metastatic cells.
