Desmosomes and adherens junctions are intercellular adhesive structures essential for the development and integrity of vertebrate tissue, including the epidermis and heart. Their cell adhesion molecules are cadherins: type 1 cadherins in adherens junctions and desmosomal cadherins in desmosomes. A fundamental difference is that desmosomes have a highly(More)
Condyle of femur (F) and tibia (T) are key bony landmarks around the knee joint. The condyles contour extraction is the first key step towards: quantification of femorotibial (FT) joint space width (JSW), to assess FT joint space narrowing (JSN), to determine knee joint alignment angles and in defining the lateral and medial condyle radii.
