Study Elucidates Molecular Interactions of Bone Sialoprotein in Cancer Cell Invasion

Although bone sialoprotein (BSP) is overexpressed in many malignant tissues, including breast, lung, prostate, and thyroid cancers, its role in tumor progression has remained unknown. In a new study, Abdullah Karadag, M.D., Ph.D., of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research in Bethesda, Md., and colleagues looked into whether BSP's interaction with other molecules enhances the invasiveness of cancer cells. They found that when BSP and two other molecules--matrix metalloproteinase 2 and integrin alphavbeta3--form a cell-surface trimolecular complex, cancer cells appear to become more invasive.
