Integrating cells into tissues

Integrating Cells Into Tissues

Dawn M. Ford


A brief overview

A Brief Overview

  • Cells aggregate into 5 main classes of tissue

    • Muscular

    • Nervous

    • Connective

    • Epithelial

    • Blood

  • Tissues are assembled to form organs


Cell adhesion

Cell Adhesion

  • Allows cells to aggregate & provides means for bidirectional transfer of information

  • Cell-to-cell adhesion

    • Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs)

  • Cell-matrix adhesion

    • Adhesion receptors bind to extracellular matrix (ECM)


Cell to cell adhesion

Cell-To-Cell Adhesion


Integrating cells into tissues

CAMs

  • Homotypic or heterotypic adhesion

  • Homophilic or heterophilic binding

  • Broadly distributed or clustered in cell junctions

  • Long lasting adhesions or transient


Four major cam families

Four Major CAM Families

  • Cadherins

    • Ca2+ dependent interactions

  • Selectins

    • Recognize glycoproteins & glycolipids

  • Immunoglobulin-Superfamily

    • Ca2+ independent interactions

  • Integrins

    • Multi-functional


Cell matrix adhesion

Cell-Matrix Adhesion


Extracellular matrix

Extracellular Matrix

  • Proteoglycans

  • Collagens

  • Soluble Multiadhesive Matrix Proteins


The big picture

The Big Picture

  • Adhesions very important in animal tissues

    • Formation

    • Composition

    • Architecture

    • Function

  • Adhesion molecules are highly conserved proteins

  • Complex organisms have depended on their evolution
