Cell adhesion molecules are pivotal to the development and maintenance of tissue structure in metazoan organisms. In mammals, several families of proteins are involved in cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesion. The cadherins are homophilic, primary CAMs, involved in the establishment of boundaries between cell collectives early in embryogenesis. The Ig gene… (More)
