Defining adhesion clusters: visualizing the building blocks of cell-cell adhesion

The molecular mechanisms responsible for the formation of the adherens junction at the nanoscale level have been revealed by researchers in a new article. Although the cells that make up our body are functional units by themselves, they need to interact with each other and their environment to fulfill all their functions. Cells stick to one another through physical contacts called cell adhesions. Apart from serving as physical connections that enable cells to form tissues, cell adhesions also allow the cells to sense, signal, and respond to physical or chemical changes in the environment, as well as interact with neighboring cells. —> Read More Here
