Flashcards in 19_Cell-cell interactions Deck (12)
Which cell-cell interactions are calcium-dependent?
cadherin-cadherin and selectin-lectin interactions
Which type of intercellular interactions help establish spatial order in embryogenesis?
How is spatial order established in embrogenesis?
Cells from different germ layers have distinct adhesive properties. These selective cell affinities help establish spacial order of different tissues within the embryo through cadherin-cadherin interactions.
What do IgSF proteins interact with in cell-cell adhesion?
other IGSF members OR integrins
Which class of adhesion proteins do ICAMs belong to?
What is an example of an IgSF important to neural development?
What are ICAMs in blood vessels called?
What are the domains of IgSF proteins?
Fn (Fibronectin) III & Ig
What class of proteins act as receptors for ICAMs?
What types of selectins are present on endothelial cells?
E- and P-selection
What cell-cell interaction protein is initially upregulated in endothelial cells in response to inflammation?
