A mode of cell adhesion and migration facilitated by CD44-dependent microtentacles

Tumor cells adhere to and migrate through a nanoporous, three-dimensional extracellular matrix characteristic of brain tissue, which we describe. Cells produce hyaluronic acid, a key component of the brain matrix, by creating "microtentacles" that can extend tens of micrometers from the cell body and adhere to the matrix by the CD44 receptor, a key component of the brain matrix.
