Abstract

Physiological and pathophysiological migration during the development and systemic spread of tumor cells requires a highly regulated interaction with the extracellular matrix. Sensing of the physical properties of the matrix as well as of forces exerted by the cell or acting on a cell is a prerequisite for productive migration. This review focuses on current concepts of the transmission of a physical stimulus into a biochemical signal in non-neuronal cells. Moreover, we summarize the current concepts on the regulation of affinity-modulation and regulation of protein-turnover for the formation and functionality of adhesion sites with special emphasis on the role of oncogenic signal transduction pathways such as Src family kinases and focal adhesion kinase.
