Hepatocyte surface molecule involved in the adhesion of TA3 mammary carcinoma cells to rat hepatocyte cultures.
TLDR
Monoclonal antibodies against rat liver plasma membranes, that inhibited the adhesion of mouse metastatic TA3 mammary carcinoma cells to rat hepatocytes in vitro, indicate that the OPAR antigen is different from other hepatic adhesion molecules.
A monoclonal antibody disrupting cell-cell adhesion of rat ascites hepatoma cells
TLDR
Results suggest that AF plays a significant role in the maintenance of cell islands, and a monoclonal antibody is obtained, coded MoAF-6D6, that strongly abolishes the aggregation-promoting activity of AF.
JAM-2, a Novel Immunoglobulin Superfamily Molecule, Expressed by Endothelial and Lymphatic Cells*
TLDR
The results suggest that JAM-2 is a novel vascular molecule, which participates in interendothelial junctional complexes, and the role of the protein in the sealing of cell-cell contact is suggested.
Dissecting tumor cell invasion: epithelial cells acquire invasive properties after the loss of uvomorulin-mediated cell-cell adhesion
TLDR
It is shown that nontransformed Madin-Darby canine kidney epithelial cells acquire invasive properties when intercellular adhesion is specifically inhibited by the addition of antibodies against the cell adhesion molecule uvomorulin; the separated cells then invade collagen gels and embryonal heart tissue.
A functional assay for proteins involved in establishing an epithelial occluding barrier: identification of a uvomorulin-like polypeptide
TLDR
A functional assay has been developed to identify cell surface proteins involved in the formation of epithelial tight junctions and the role of uvomorulin-like and liver cell adhesion molecule (L-CAM)-like polypeptides in the establishment of the epithelial occluding barrier is discussed.
Antagonistic effects of laminin and fibronectin in cell-to-cell and cell-to-matrix interactions in MCF-7 cultures
TLDR
Antilaminin antibodies inhibited cluster formation and attachment, emphasizing the important role of this glycoprotein not only in promoting cluster attachment but also in cell-to-cell contact formation in tumor progression and metastasis.

Manipulation of cell-cell and cell-substratum interactions in mouse mammary tumor epithelial cells using broad spectrum antisera
TLDR
Statistical analysis of transmission electron micrographs of control and antibody-treated cells indicates that treatment with anti-SFM II is associated with a substantial reduction in the extent of intercellular junctions, particularly desmosomes.
A cell surface molecule involved in aggregation of embryonic liver cells.
TLDR
In hepatocyte cultures, Fab' fragments of antibodies against the liver molecule prevented both colony formation and appearance of histotypic patterns and it was confirmed that the two cell adhesion molecules are antigenically unrelated.
Functional correlation between cell adhesive properties and some cell surface proteins
TLDR
The adhesive properties of Chinese hamster V79 cells were analyzed and characterized by various cell dissociation treatments, and it was found that several proteins are more intensely labeled in cells with Ca2+-independent adhesiveness than in cells without that property.
Cell adhesion molecules.
TLDR
The neuron-specific molecule is involved in early embryonic events but also mediates neurite fasciculation, neuromuscular interaction, and orderly layering of neural tissue and a failure of this process is closely correlated with connectional disorders in the staggerer mutant of the mouse.
Monoclonal antibodies against receptor for epidermal growth factor induce early and delayed effects of epidermal growth factor.
TLDR
Observations support the notion that the biological information of the EGF-receptor complex resides in the membrane receptor, and the antibodies offer a powerful tool to study the structure, processing, and mode of action of EGF receptors.
Rapid induction of morphological changes in human carcinoma cells A-431 by epidermal growth factors
TLDR
Within the first hour of exposure to the hormone, the cell surface becomes exceedingly smooth and the nuclei seem to protrude above the plane of the otherwise thin monolayer, giving the cells a "fried egg" appearance.
