The product is a cell-adhesion molecule
that may be effective in the treatment of inflammatory diseases.
Similarly, depletion of Cadherin-2, a cell-adhesion molecule
and key regulator of cell migration, leads to loss of directionality.
The research looked at the role of the cell-adhesion molecule
E-cadherin in embryonic stem (ES) cells.
In a first step they showed that the pluripotency of these stem cells is directly associated with the cell-adhesion molecule
The cell-adhesion molecule
called L1 guides cell migration in the developing brain.
Through this strategy, they can often tentatively decide that a gene encodes a cell-adhesion molecule
, signaling protein, or some other type of molecule.
1) between cadherin 10 (CDH10) and cadherin 9 (CDH9), two genes that encode neuronal cell-adhesion molecules
Cadherin cell-adhesion molecules
in human epithelial tissues and carcinomas.
