The integrin family of adhesion receptors regulates basic functions of cells, and the signalsthey induce are altered in tumor cells. In this review we discuss how different integrindependentsignals are generated during cell adhesion and by physical forces acting oncells.We also describe how reactive oxygen species are integral parts of integrin signalingand highlight a few important questions in the field. Answers to those may improve ourunderstanding of integrins and their role in the development of cancer.
