Overview

Presents recent research efforts in the genetic basis of pattern formation and morphogenesis, especially the expression of adhesion molecules. Reviews our understanding of the structure, function, and genetic control of the three families of molecules involved in adhesion: cell adhesion molecules (CAMs), substrate adhesion molecules (SAMs), and cell junctional molecules (CJMs). Covers the biology and chemistry of CAMs, structure and interaction of SAMs, components of junctional complexes, function in histogenesis and disease, and morphology and development.
