It is shown that adherent and non-adherent human ovarian carcinoma cells (OVP 10) secrete MMPs and their production was stimulated by fibronectin as documented by gelatinise zymography. These cells also presented an increase of ERK phosphorylating activity following fibronectin stimulation, regardless of their adhesion. Contrary to OVP 10 cells, the human urothelial cells (HCV-29) are more anchorage-dependent. They only secreted the MMPs under adherent conditions and they revealed a lower level of basal and fibronectin stimulated ERK phosphorylation activity. In addition, non-adhering HCV-29 cells showed post translational down-regulation of focal adhesion kinase.
