Abstract Epithelial ovarian carcinoma spreads via shedding of cells and multicellular aggregates (MCAs) from the primary tumor into peritoneal cavity, with subsequent intraperitoneal tumor cell:mesothelial cell adhesion as a key early event in metastatic seeding. Evaluation of human tumor extracts and tissues confirms that well-differentiated ovarian tumors express abundant E-cadherin (Ecad), whereas advanced lesions exhibit upregulated N-cadherin (Ncad). Two expression patterns are observed: "m...

Cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) promote metastasis by creating tracks for cancer cell migration. Labernadie et al. now show that heterotypic adhesions between E-cadherin on cancer cells and N-cadherin on CAFs transmit forces to drive invasion.

Emerging evidence suggest that many high-grade serous "ovarian" cancers (HGSOC) start in the fallopian tube. Cancer cells are then recruited to the ovary and then spread diffusely through the abdomen. The mechanism of ovarian cancer spread was thought to be largely due to direct shedding of tumor cells into the peritoneal cavity with vascular spread being of limited importance. Recent work challenges this dogma, suggesting hematogenous spread of ovarian cancer may play a larger role in ovarian c...

Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the leading cause of death from gynecologic malignancy, with high mortality attributable to widespread intraperitoneal metastases. Recent meta-analyses report an association between obesity, ovarian cancer incidence, and ovarian cancer survival, but the effect of obesity on metastasis has not been evaluated. The objective of this study was to use an integrative approach combining in vitro , ex vivo , and in vivo studies to test the hypothesis that obesity contr...

Multiple attributes of the three-dimensional (3D) extracellular matrix (ECM) have been independently implicated as regulators of cell motility, including pore size, crosslink density, structural organization, and stiffness. However, these parameters cannot be independently varied within a complex 3D ECM protein network. We present an integrated, quantitative study of these parameters across a broad range of complex matrix configurations using self-assembling 3D collagen and show how each paramet...

In cancer metastasis and other physiological processes, cells migrate through the three-dimensional (3D) extra- cellular matrix of connective tissue and must overcome the steric hindrance posed by pores that are smaller than the cells. It is currently assumed that low cell stiffness promotes cell migration through confined spaces, but other factors such as adhesion and traction forces may be equally important. To study 3D migration under confinement in a stiff (1.77 MPa) environment, we use soft...

Abstract Objective Genomic studies of ovarian cancer (OC) cell lines frequently used in research revealed that these cells do not fully represent high-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC), the most common OC histologic type. However, OC lines that appear to genomically resemble HGSOC have not been extensively used and their growth characteristics in murine xenografts are essentially unknown. Methods To better understand growth patterns and characteristics of HGSOC cell lines in vivo, CAOV3, COV36...

The cell adhesion molecule (CAM), N-cadherin, has emerged as an important oncology therapeutic target. N-cadherin is a transmembrane glycoprotein mediating the formation and structural integrity of blood vessels. Its expression has also been documented in numerous types of poorly differentiated tumours. This CAM is involved in regulating the proliferation, survival, invasiveness and metastasis of cancer cells. Disruption of N-cadherin homophilic intercellular interactions using peptide or small ...

Summary Background Cell migration requires coordinated formation of focal adhesions (FAs) and assembly and contraction of the actin cytoskeleton. Nonmuscle myosin II (MII) is a critical mediator of contractility and FA dynamics in cell migration. Signaling downstream of the small GTPase Rac1 also regulates FA and actin dynamics, but its role in regulation of MII during migration is less clear. Results We found that Rac1 promotes association of MIIA with FA. Live-cell imaging showed that, whereas...

The plakin family of cytoskeletal proteins play an important role in cancer progression yet are under-studied in cancer, especially ovarian cancer. These large cytoskeletal proteins have primary roles in the maintenance of cytoskeletal integrity but are also associated with scaffolds of intermediate filaments and hemidesmosomal adhesion complexes mediating signalling pathways that regulate cellular growth, migration, invasion and differentiation as well as stress response. Abnormalities of plaki...

Cadherin 6 (CDH6) is significantly overexpressed in advanced ovarian and renal cancers. However, the role of CDH6 in cancer metastasis is largely unclear. Here, we investigated the impact of CDH6 expression on integrin-mediated metastatic progression. CDH6 preferentially bound to αIIbβ3 integrin, a platelet receptor scarcely expressed in cancer cells, and this interaction was mediated through the cadherin RGD motif. Furthermore, CDH6 and CDH17 were found to interact with α2β1 in αIIbβ3low cells....

MUC16 (the cancer antigen CA125) is the most commonly used serum biomarker in epithelial ovarian cancer, with increasing levels reflecting disease progression. It is a transmembrane glycoprotein with multiple isoforms, undergoing significant changes through the metastatic process. Aberrant glycosylation and cleavage with overexpression of a small membrane-bound fragment consist MUC16-related mechanisms that enhance malignant potential. Even MUC16 knockdown can induce an aggressive phenotype but ...

Abstract Granulosa cell tumors (GCT) of the ovary have a good prognosis. Recurrence tends to be late; however, > 66% of patients with recurrentGCT die from the disease. Most recurrences are abdominopelvic, although distant metastases have been documented. Here, we tested the hypothesis that a mixture of persistent endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) stimulates the invasion of GCT cells. We selected perfluorooctanoate (PFOA, 2 ng/ml), perfluorooctanesulfonate (PFOS, 8 ng/ml), 2,2-dichlorodiphen...
Proteases play a crucial role in the progression and metastasis of ovarian cancer. Pericellular protein degradation and fragmentation along with remodeling of the extracellular matrix (ECM) is accomplished by numerous proteases that are present in the ovarian tumor microenvironment. Several proteolytic processes have been linked to cancer progression, particularly those facilitated by the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family. These proteases have been linked to enhanced migratory ability, extra...

Late presentation and resistance to chemotherapeutic agents make a deadly combination for ovarian cancer patients. The treatment of these patients is thus challenging. This study explores the possible molecular mechanisms by which tumor cells interact with the extracellular matrix (ECM) constituents, forming metastatic implants and enhancing patients' sensitivity to drugs. For the literature review, PubMed was used as a database. The standard search was done using keywords "collagen, ovarian can...

Abstract The majority of women with ovarian cancer are diagnosed with metastatic disease, therefore elucidating molecular events that contribute to successful metastatic dissemination may identify additional targets for therapeutic intervention and thereby positively impact survival. Using two human high grade serous ovarian cancer cell lines with inactive TP53 and multiple rounds of serial in vivo passaging, we generated sublines with significantly accelerated intra-peritoneal (IP) growth.

Cancer metastasis, the spread of disease from a primary to a distal site through the circulatory or lymphatic systems, accounts for over 90% of all cancer related deaths. Despite significant progress in the field of cancer therapy in recent years, mortality rates remain dramatically higher for patients with metastatic disease versus those with local or regional disease. Although there is clearly an urgent need to develop drugs that inhibit cancer spread, the overwhelming majority of anticancer t...

Poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase inhibitors (PARPis) specifically target homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) cells and display good therapeutic effect in women with advanced-stage BRCA1/2-mutated breast and epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). However, about 50% of high grade serous ovarian cancers (HGSOC) present with HRD due to epigenetic BRCA1 inactivation, as well as genetic/epigenetic inactivation(s) of other HR genes, a feature known as “BRCAness”. Therefore, there is a potential for extendin...

The majority of women with recurrent ovarian cancer (OvCa) develop malignant ascites with volumes that can reach > 2 L. The resulting elevation in intraperitoneal pressure (IPP), from normal values of 5 mmHg to as high as 22 mmHg, causes striking changes in the loading environment in the peritoneal cavity. The effect of ascites-induced changes in IPP on OvCa progression is largely unknown. Herein we model the functional consequences of ascites-induced compression on ovarian tumor cells and compo...
