Objective: For glial tumor cells, the mechanisms used by integrins, especially αvβ3 integrin, to promote tumor cell proliferation are still a matter of discussion. Krüppel-like factor 8 (KLF-8) has been identified only recently as an integrin-dependent signaling molecule which stimulates[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
