CD44 enhances invasion of basal-like breast cancer cells by up-regulating serine protease and collagen-degrading enzymatic expression and activity

Breast Cancer Research, 05/24/2012

Hyaluronan (HA)–induced CD44 signaling increases a diverse spectrum of protease activity to facilitate the invasion associated with Basal–like breast cancers (BL–BCa) cells, providing new insights into the molecular basis of CD44–promoted invasion.
