Growing evidence indicates that critical steps in cancer progression such as cell adhesion, migration, and cell cycle progression are regulated by the composition and organization of the microenvironment. The adhesion of cancer cells to components of the microenvironment and the forces transmitted to the cells via the actinomyosin network and the signaling… CONTINUE READING
