ADHESION MOLECULES IN CARCINOGENESIS
An approach to the adhesion molecules and to the role that they play in the whole carcinogenetic process is attempted by this article. The structure, function and their characteristics as well as the role of some important members of the five major families (integrins, cadherins, immunoglobulin gene superfamily, selectins, and CD44) of adhesion molecules are discussed. Data from basic and applied clinical research are given.
