From: Tumor cell invasion of collagen matrices requires coordinate lipid agonist-induced G-protein and membrane-type matrix metalloproteinase-1-dependent signaling

Figure 15

Schematic diagram summarizing the roles of LPA, S1P, RhoGTPases, and MT1-MMP in tumor migration and invasion of collagen matrices. LPA stimulates tumor cells migration while S1P inhibits migration of most tumor types on 2D matrix substrates. Lipid-induced invasion of 3D collagen matrices, but not migration, requires MT1-MMP. Only tumor cell invasion of 3D matrices is blocked by MMP inhibitors.
