Cell–cell adhesion is prime for the improvement and homeostasis of animal tissues and organs. Adherens junctions (AJs) are the simplest understood cell-cell adhesion complexes. during this quantity, a bunch 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 an essential component of animal evolution, and play principal roles in melanoma improvement, pathogen an infection and different ailments. 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 telephone?
• How do AJs impact phone behaviour and multicellular improvement?
• How can irregular AJ task result in disease?
