CAFs are capable of secreting elevated levels of stromal cell-derived factor 1 (SDF-1), also called CXCL12, which plays a central role in the promotion of tumour growth and angiogenesis; CAF-derived SDF-1 not only stimulates carcinoma growth directly through the CXCR4 receptor expressed on tumour cells, but also serves to recruit endothelial progenitor cells into tumours [11,12].
