Charalabopoulos Konstantinos1, Mittari Evanthia1, Christos Golias1, Peschos Dimitrios1, Batistatou A.2

Summary. In the review, the role of integrin receptors as well as of some of their ligands of the extracellular matrix in cases of parotid neoplasms is discussed, in particular, the data concerning the expression of various types of integrin adhesion molecules in benign and malignant tumors of the parotid, the expression of fibronectin, tenascin, and collagen type IV etc. The role of dysregulation of the expression of these proteins in invasion and metastasis of parotid tumors is discussed.
