Lipoxygenase products regulate IRGpIIb/IIIa receptor mediated adhesion of tumor cells to endothelial cells, subendothelial matrix and fibronectin

Tumor cell adhesion to endothelial cells, subendothelial matrix, and fibronectin is stimulated by the lipoxygenase metabolite of arachidonic acid, 12(S)-HETE, but not by 12(R)-HETE, 5-HETE or 15-HETE. Adhesion is also stimulated by the phorbol ester TPA, an effect inhibited by lipoxygenase but not cyclooxygenase inhibitors. TPA and 12(S)-HETE mediated adhesion is due, in part, to an integrin receptor (i.e., IRGpIIb/IIIa) related to the platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa complex and is inhibited by specific monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies against platelet IIb/IIIa. TPA and 12(S)-HETE stimulated adhesion is also inhibited by a lipoxygenase product of linoleic acid; i.e., 13-HODE. These results suggest bidirectional control of tumor cell adhesion by lipoxygenase products of arachidonic acid (increase) and linoleic acid (decrease)
