Laminin-2/4 is the major laminin isoform of normal muscle and nerve tissues and plays an important role in tumor invasion and metastasis. Despite the fact that laminin-2/4 has been found in the skin basement membrane, insufficient evidence is available on the effect of laminin-2/4 on the behavior of both normal and transformed skin cells. A comparison of the contribution of α2β1, α3β1, α6β4 integrins and 67
Key words: Laminin-2/4, Integrins, 67
