Nucleotides and nucleosides have emerged as important modulators of tumor biology. Recently acquired evidence shows that, when these molecules are released by cancer cells or surrounding tissues, they act as potent prometastatic factors, favoring tumor cell migration and tissue colonization. Therefore, nucleotides and nucleosides should be considered as a new class of prometastatic factors. In this review, we focus on the prometastatic roles of nucleotides and discuss future applications of purinergic signaling modulation in view of antimetastatic therapies.

Abstract

Nucleotides and nucleosides have emerged as important modulators of tumor biology. Recently acquired evidence shows that, when these molecules are released by cancer cells or surrounding tissues, they act as potent prometastatic factors, favoring tumor cell migration and tissue colonization. Therefore, nucleotides and nucleosides should be considered as a new class of prometastatic factors. In this review, we focus on the prometastatic roles of nucleotides and discuss future applications of purinergic signaling modulation in view of antimetastatic therapies.
