Molecular Basis for Teratocarcinoma Cell-Cell Adhesion
Cell-cell interactions are essential for many developmental systems. Molecules responsible for joining cells presumably play important roles in cellular interaction—not only by providing bridges between cells but also by functioning as a key factor for cell-cell recognition and for other cellular processes. Characterizing cell adhesion molecules is therefore of great interest in elucidating the molecular nature of various cell-cell interacting systems.
