Functional differences between integrin alpha4 and integrins alpha5/alphav in modulating the motility of human oral squamous carcinoma cells in response to the V region and heparin-binding domain of fibronectin.

Abstract

The high-affinity heparin-binding domain and the V region of fibronectin (FN) mediate invasion and migration of human oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) cells. We investigated the role of the alpha4, alpha5, and alphav integrin receptors--which are central to mediating interactions with these domains of FN--in regulating SCC cell migration. SCC cells… (More)
