In text example for journals:

Studies of in vitro models suggest that the a6b4 integrin—a component of hemidesmosomes—contributes to oncogenesis by sustaining RTK signaling. b4 integrin signaling proceeds through Src family kinase (SFK) mediated phosphorylation of the cytoplasmic domain of b4, recruitment of Shc, and activation of Ras and PI-3K (Mainiero et al., 1997; Shaw et al., 1997). In spite of this body of work, the hypothesis that a6b4 has a protumorigenic function remains controversial. Expression of wild-type, but not signaling defective, b4 activates p53 and induces cell-cycle arrest and apoptosis in rectal carcinoma cells (Bachelder and Mercurio, 1999).
