Cell communication is essential to development, tissue organization and function of all multicellular organisms. Cells communicate with each other and with their environment via soluble mediators and during direct contact. In the immune system leukocytes are involved in a host of cell-soluble mediator, cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions. For instance, an acute inflammatory response is initiated by release of soluble substances at the site of injury that direct leukocyte migration and… Expand

Signal transduction by cell adhesion receptors in leukocytes
TLDR
Interactions of leukocytes with other cells and various extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins lead to different functional cell responses, including changes in growth, behavior, and differentiation. Expand
The Role of β2-Leukocyte Integrins In Vivo
The acute inflammatory response is characterized by the destructive activity of leukocytes against foreign pathogens and/or host tissue. In the event of bacterial invasion, leukocytes are directed toExpand
Integrin receptors of phagocytes
TLDR
The role of integrin receptors in myeloid cell function with emphasis on host-pathogen interactions is discussed and how simultaneous ligation of several integrins, with different ligands and distinct but overlapping functions, can be sensed by a single cell is examined. Expand
Integrins—A Versatile and Old Family of Cell Adhesion Molecules
In multicellular organisms, cell-cell contacts within a tissue as well as contacts between cells and the extracellular matrix, which scaffolds the tissue, are indispensably required for theExpand
Adhesion in Leukocyte Homing and Differentiation
TLDR
A model of Leukocyte Adhesion to Vascular Endothelium and Regulation of Adhesion Receptor Expression in Endothelial Cells and the Contributions of Integrins to Leukocytes Infiltration in Inflamed Tissues are described. Expand
CELL ADHESION MOLECULES: A UNIFYING APPROACH TO TOPOGRAPHIC BIOLOGY
  • M. Turner
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Biological reviews of the Cambridge Philosophical Society
  • 1992
TLDR
The pathophysiology of processes such as infection and neoplasia are profoundly affected by cellular CAM expression, and CAMs and related molecules are fundamental to the development, maintenance and surveillance of tissue structure. Expand
Adhesion molecules in lung diseases
TLDR
Though their role in tumor development is still unclear, adhesion molecules are obviously involved in determining the route and organotropism of metastases and may provide attractive new therapeutic approaches to problems for which treatment is not yet available. Expand
Demonstration of the leukocyte-endothelial cell adhesion cascade involved in lymphocyte recirculation and neutrophil and lymphocyte localization to sites of inflammation
Experimental evidence derived from multiple experimental systems, presented in this thesis, support the hypothesis that tight leukocyte adhesion to endothelial cells (EC) is regulated by a multi-stepExpand
Integrins and tissue organization
TLDR
This short review provides a summary of the roles of integrins in the organization and maintenance of tissues like the vascular endothelium and the epidermis which are formed by highly polarized cells. Expand
Cellular adhesion molecules.
TLDR
The role of five CAMs that mediate cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions belong to at least five families: cadherins, the immunoglobulin gene superfamily, integrins, selectins, and cell surface proteoglycans are described. Expand

ICAM, an adhesion ligand of LFA-1, is homologous to the neural cell adhesion molecule NCAM
TLDR
It is shown that a complementary DNA clone ICAM-1 contains no RGD motifs, but instead is homologous to the neural cell adhesion molecule NCAM10,11. Expand
The leukocyte integrins.
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the molecular biology of the leukocyte integrins, LFA-1, Mac- 1, and p150,95, and on their role in mediating inflammation and the discovery and characterization of immunodeficiency patients who are genetically deficient in their expression of theLeukocyte Integrins. Expand
Oligospecificity of the cellular adhesion receptor Mac-1 encompasses an inducible recognition specificity for fibrinogen
TLDR
Evidence is presented here that the leukocyte adhesion receptor Mac-1 can be specifically induced to bind fibrinogen with characteristics immunochemically and functionally distinct from the established Arg-Gly- Asp-directed fibr inogen receptors. Expand
The cell interaction sites of fibronectin in tumour metastasis.
TLDR
From the results of a variety of in vitro invasion and migration assays it appears that GRGDS may interfere with multiple, fibronectin-mediated adhesive and migratory events at different points of the metastatic cascade. Expand
Adhesion molecules controlling lymphocyte migration
TLDR
The sequence of Mel-14 provides structural support for the hypothesis that lectin-carbohydrate interactions mediate physiologically significant adhesion events in the course of lymphocyte recirculation. Expand
The lymphocyte function-associated LFA-1, CD2, and LFA-3 molecules: cell adhesion receptors of the immune system.
TLDR
This review focuses on LFAI, CD2, and LFA-3, which appear to enhance antigen-specific functions by acting as cell adhesion molecules and the role of CD4 and CD8 is reviewed by Littman. Expand
Integrins: A family of cell surface receptors
TLDR
This brief review of sequence data from embryogenesis, thrombosis, and lymphocyte help and killing is summarized and attempts to clarify the relationships among the members of this family of cell surface receptors. Expand
Functional cloning of ICAM-2, a cell adhesion ligand for LFA-1 homologous to ICAM-1
TLDR
A second LFA-1 ligand is cloned, designated ICAM-2, using a novel method for identifying ligands of adhesion molecules, demonstrating the existence of a subfamily of immunoglobulin-like ligands that bind the same integrin receptor. Expand
T lymphocyte adhesion to endothelial cells: mechanisms demonstrated by anti-LFA-1 monoclonal antibodies.
TLDR
The results suggest that the mechanism of binding of lymphocytes to unstimulated endothelium differs from that to stimulated endothelia, and LFA-1 appears to be an important adhesion-related molecule for binding to unstIMulated endot Helium. Expand
New perspectives in cell adhesion: RGD and integrins.
TLDR
Together, the adhesion proteins and their receptors constitute a versatile recognition system providing cells with anchorage, traction for migration, and signals for polarity, position, differentiation, and possibly growth. Expand
