Autocrine motility factor articles from across Nature Portfolio

Autocrine motility factor (AMF) is a substance secreted by a cell that acts via surface receptors on the same cell to regulate cell motility pathways by signalling through the GTPase Rho to the actin cytoskeleton, and through PI3 kinase. When derived from tumours, AMF can enhance cell migration, leading to tumour metastasis.
