Essentially, cell adhesion molecules help cells stick to each other and to their surroundings.These proteins are typically transmembrane receptors and are composed of three domains: : These proteins are typically transmembrane receptors and are composed of three domains: an intracellular domain that interacts with the cytoskeleton, a transmembrane domain an extracellular domain that interacts either with other CAMs of the same kind ( homophilic binding) or with other CAMs or the extracellular matrix ( heterophilic binding). ADHESIVE JUNCTION “buttons or zipper” between 2 cells Consist of dense glycoprotein bodies inside cells (plaques): ADHESIVE JUNCTION “ buttons or zipper” between 2 cells Consist of dense glycoprotein bodies inside cells (plaques ) DESMOSOME – between 2 cells. Proteins called cadherins between 2 plaques - spot-desmosomes Band-desmosomes Can be “ adherens junction” actine + cadherine . Less strong than desmosome HEMIDESMOSOMES – between cell and basal membrane. Proteins called Integrines of cell anchored to the matrix.TIGHT JUNCTION : TIGHT JUNCTION - 2 cells fuse together by occludins - Create impermeable barrier in kidneys, brain, intestines JUNCTION COMPLEX: JUNCTION COMPLEX Tight junction + adhesive junction GAP JUNCTION: GAP JUNCTION - Cytoplasmic bridge between cells for passing chemical and electrical signals Connexines – cylindrical proteins - Mostly in heart and nerves, but can be found in liver, pancreas, ovary, thyroid glands ZONULA OCCLUDENS : ZONULA OCCLUDENS Zone where row of occludines create barrier ZONULA ADHERENS : ZONULA ADHERENS Zone of belt-desmosome or Adherens junctionPowerPoint Presentation: MACULA ADHERENS -DESMOSOME You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
