Adhesion of cells to biomaterials or to components of the extracellular matrix is fundamental in many tissue engineering and biotechnological processes, as well as in normal development and tissue maintenance. Many cells on adhesive molecules will spread and form an organized actin cytoskeleton and complex transmembrane signaling regions called focal adhesions. Focal adhesions appear to function as both signaling and stabilizing components of normal adherent cell activity. To better understand… CONTINUE READING
