The roles of nectins in cell adhesions: cooperation with other cell adhesion molecules and growth factor receptors.

Abstract

Nectins are Ca(2+)-independent Ig-like cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) which homophilically and heterophilically interact in trans with nectins and form cell-cell adhesion. This cell-cell adhesion is involved in the formation of many types of cell-cell junctions such as adherens junctions, tight junctions, and synaptic junctions, cooperatively with other… (More)
