Cellular interactions in the rat testis are suggested by the presence of gap junctions between developing germ cells and Sertoli cells as well as tight junctions between adjacent Sertoli cells. Cadherins are cell surface proteins that mediate calcium-dependent intercellular adhesion. In these experiments the presence and developmental regulation of three cadherins have been examined: epithelial cadherin (E-Cad), neural cadherin (N-Cad), and placental cadherin (P-Cad). Northern blot analysis of… CONTINUE READING
