Highlights

  • Detailed protocol for extracting primary fibroblasts from human gastric cancer
  • Achieve the high isolation rate of fibroblasts by the current method
  • Method to induce senescent fibroblasts by inflammatory cytokines

Summary

Accumulating evidence suggests that the malignant behavior of cancer is influenced by stromal activity in the tumor microenvironment. Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs), which are the main component of the cancerous stroma, play an important role in cancer development. Here, we describe a protocol to establish CAFs from surgically resected tissues. CAFs could be a vital tool for understanding the microenvironment and its impact on tumor progression and metastasis. Moreover, we generated inflammation-induced senescent fibroblasts that more closely mimic the tumor microenvironment.
