The ability of a tumor cell to metastasize is determined, in part, by its adhesive interactions with other cells and with components of the extracellular matrix. An ever-expanding family of cell surface receptors, the integrins, is an essential player in these interactions.

Here we review recent progress toward this… CONTINUE READING
