Tony Harris's Adherens Junctions: from Molecular Mechanisms to Tissue PDF

By Tony Harris

Cell–cell adhesion is prime for the advance and homeostasis of animal tissues and organs. Adherens junctions (AJs) are the easiest understood cell-cell adhesion complexes. during this quantity, a gaggle of across the world famous specialists studies AJ biology over quite a lot of association; from atoms to molecules, to protein complexes, molecular networks, cells, tissues, and total animal improvement. AJs have additionally been a vital part of animal evolution, and play imperative roles in melanoma improvement, pathogen an infection and different illnesses. This e-book addresses significant questions encompassing AJ biology.
• How did AJs evolve?
• How do cadherins and catenins have interaction to collect AJs and mediate adhesion?
• How do AJs interface with different mobile equipment to couple adhesion with the total mobilephone?
• How do AJs have an effect on mobilephone behaviour and multicellular improvement?
• How can irregular AJ job result in disease?
