Intercellular recognitions are fundamental processes which allow tissue organization and organ development as well as the exchange of informations among cells. This happens through the interaction of specific molecules which are located on the surface of one cell and can recognize other specific molecules present on the surface of another cell or in the extracellular matrix.
