The adhesive function of Ca2(+)-dependent CAMS has in the past been studied only indirectly, mainly using immunological techniques. The molecular cloning and information about the primary structure of several CAMs has been an important step in a more detailed molecular analysis. If there is a homophilic interaction between CAMs of neighbouring cells, an important question concerns the specificity of each CAM-mediated adhesiveness. Has each CAM a unique specificity and can this specificity be… CONTINUE READING
