Browse adhesion & migration pathways
Cell adhesion is the interaction of one cell with another cell or with the extracellular matrix (ECM), enabling cell migration and tissue maintenance. Two cell signaling pathways included in this area of biology are granulocyte adhesion and diapedesis as well as transendothelial migration of leukocytes.
Adhesion and diapedesis of granulocytes have mostly been analyzed in context to non-lymphoid endothelium.
Transport of plasma proteins and solutes across the endothelium involves two different routes: transcellular and paracellular junctions.
