TIMP-2 expression modulates human melanoma cell adhesion and motility.

Abstract

Invasion of cells across extracellular matrix barriers requires attachment of cells to the matrix, creation of a proteolytic defect in the matrix, and migration of the cells through the defect. To date, alterations in the balance between matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their inhibitors have been shown to alter cellular invasion only through effects on… (More)
