Cell motility and chemotaxis can make important contributions to the metastatic cascade. Cell migration pathways in general play significant roles in a variety of physiological processes that can be “hijacked” by cancer cells. Both growth factors and chemokines provide important chemotactic signals in development and metastasis. Receptor activation, following binding of a growth factor or a chemokine, leads to dynamic morphological changes in the actin cytoskeleton network via a variety of… Expand
PI3Kgamma activation by CXCL12 regulates tumor cell adhesion and invasion.
TLDR
Analysis of pathways in a human melanoma cell line in response to CXCL12 stimulation found that PI3Kgamma regulates tumor cell adhesion through mechanisms different from those involved in cell invasion. Expand
Systems microscopy approaches to understand cancer cell migration and metastasis
TLDR
This review provides an overview of recent advanced imaging strategies together with quantitative image analysis that can be implemented to understand the dynamics of matrix adhesions and its molecular components in relation to tumour cell migration. Expand
The Role of Tumour-Associated Macrophages in Malignant Invasion
Influencing cancer cell invasion is one of the many ways, tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) can foster tumor progression. Penetration of the basement membrane and movement of tumor cells throughExpand
mTOR signaling in cancer cell motility and tumor metastasis.
TLDR
Recent advances regarding mTOR signaling in tumor cell motility are reviewed and the mechanism by which rapamycin, a specific inhibitor of mTOR, inhibits cell Motility in vitro and metastasis in vivo is discussed. Expand
Eukaryotic chemotaxis: a network of signaling pathways controls motility, directional sensing, and polarity.
TLDR
By exploiting the genetic advantages of Dictyostelium, investigators are working out the complex network of interactions between the proteins that have been implicated in the chemotactic processes of motility, directional sensing, and polarity. Expand
Rapid regulatory actions of sex steroids on cell movement through the actin cytoskeleton
TLDR
This review highlights the physiological and clinical conditions where the regulatory effects on the cytoskeleton and cell movement of sex steroids might have a special importance, as well as the recent advances in the characterization of the mechanisms, providing insights and working hypotheses on possible clinical applications for the modulation of these pathways.

Cell migration-the role of integrin glycosylation.
TLDR
Results gained from integrins with artificial or mutated N-glycosylation sites provide evidence that integrin function can be regulated by changes in glycosylations, and could lead to novel diagnostic and therapeutic approaches and applications. Expand
Macrophages define the invasive microenvironment in breast cancer

  • Journal of leukocyte biology
  • 2008
TLDR
This review argues that macrophages are recruited to the invasive front by expression of tumor‐derived chemotactic factors and in response to the disruption of the basement membrane, and suggests thatmacrophage functions are significant targets for the generation of novel therapeutics that should improve the current cytotoxic armamentarium. Expand
Cell biology of embryonic migration.
TLDR
This review provides a broad summary of the existing and emerging data in the cell and developmental biology fields regarding cell migration during development and considers the intracellular mechanisms of cell migration in the context of the developing organisms that contain additional levels of complexity provided by extracellular regulation.

Overexpression of lumican affects the migration of human colon cancer cells through up-regulation of gelsolin and filamentous actin reorganization.
TLDR
The data suggest that lumican expression and its presence in ECM has an impact on colon cancer cells motility and may modulate invasiveness of colon cancer. Expand

Regulation of the actin cytoskeleton in cancer cell migration and invasion.
TLDR
Recent progress on molecular mechanisms of formation of invasive protrusions used by tumor cells, such as lamellipodia and invadopodia, with regard to the functions of key regulatory proteins of the actin cytoskeleton; WASP family proteins, Arp2/3 complex, LIM-kinase, cofilin, and cortactin are summarized.

TLDR
In response to the gain or loss of these key molecular determinants, significant adaptation reactions can modify the cell's shape, pattern, and migration mechanism; examples of this include the epithelial-mesenchymal transition and collective-amoeboid transition. Expand
Differing modes of tumour cell invasion have distinct requirements for Rho/ROCK signalling and extracellular proteolysis
TLDR
Two modes of tumour-cell motility in 3D matrices that involve different usage of Rho signalling are identified and combined blockade of extracellular proteases and ROCK negates the ability of tumours to switch between modes of motility and synergises to prevent tumour cell invasion. Expand
Mechanisms of Gradient Sensing and Chemotaxis: Conserved Pathways, Diverse Regulation
TLDR
This work quantitatively characterized a different gradient sensing system, that of platelet-derived growth factor-stimulated fibroblasts, an important component of dermal wound healing and led us to speculate on the diversity of gradient sensing mechanisms and their biological implications. Expand
The great escape: when cancer cells hijack the genes for chemotaxis and motility.
TLDR
This model proposes that tumor invasion and metastasis can be studied as a problem resembling normal morphogenesis, and a gene expression signature for invasive cells and the tumor microenvironment invasion model is proposed. Expand
Chemotactic cell movement during development.
TLDR
The dynamics of these processes can be studied in individual cells in developing organisms through the detection of small rapid diffusing chemo-attractants through serpentine, G protein coupled receptors. Expand

TLDR
The current review describes the multifaceted roles of chemokines in malignancy, addressing four major aspects of their activities: inducing leukocyte infiltration to tumors and regulating immune functions, with emphasis on tumor-associated macrophages. Expand
Macrophages: Obligate Partners for Tumor Cell Migration, Invasion, and Metastasis
TLDR
Macrophages within the tumor microenvironment facilitate angiogenesis and extracellular-matrix breakdown and remodeling and promote tumor cell motility and are an important drug target for cancer therapy. Expand

Observations reveal that CXCR4 is an important molecule involved in the spread and progression of a variety of different tumors, and that CxCR4 antagonists, although initially developed for treatment of AIDS, actually may become effective agents for the treatment of neoplastic disease. Expand
