The structure of cell-adhesion molecules

M J Humphries, P Newham

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In recent years, following the identification and molecular cloning of many key adhesion molecules, the three-dimensional structures of some of the domains that mediate adhesive interactions have been determined. This review discusses how these studies have helped explain the unique functional roles of the different families of adhesion molecules.
