Expression and function of beta 1 and alpha v beta 3 integrins in ovarian cancer.

Abstract

Ovarian cancer cells disseminate by implanting onto the peritoneal mesothelial cell surface of the abdominal cavity. A common feature of these peritoneal implants is the presence of tumor cell invasion into the submesothelial extracellular matrix (ECM). In view of the important role of integrins in ECM recognition and cell migration, we were interested in… (More)
