The binding of tissue-specific adhesive molecules to the cell surface. A molecular basis for specificity.


Factors present in supernatants prepared from neural retina or cerebral lobe tissue cultures bind specifically to cells of the same type and promote cellular aggregation; the basis for the specificity of these factor-cell interactions has been investigated. Pronase digestion destroys binding of protein but not the carbohydrate portion of factors. Digestion… (More)
