• adhesion
  • We tested whether establishment of the basolateral membrane domain and E-cadherin-mediated epithelial cell-cell adhesion are mechanistically linked. (rupress.org)
  • Functional disruption of individual components of a putative lateral targeting patch (e.g., microtubules, the exocyst, and soluble N -ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor attachment protein receptors) did not inhibit cell-cell adhesion or colocalization of the other components with E-cadherin, but each blocked AQP3 delivery to forming cell-cell contacts.

  • Adhesion is mediated by cadherins, which interact homophilically in trans and form lateral interactions in cis. (biologists.org)
