Biochemical Society symposium; no.75


The symposium was held in Manchester, England in December 2007 to explore how modern techniques in structural and cell biology have furthered the scientific understanding of the mechanisms and dynamics of cell adhesion and its contribution to cell signaling. Among the topics are cadherins, adherens junctions and desmosomes, integrins and focal contacts, receptor tyrosine phosphatases, Notch and Slit-Robo signaling, adhesive binding to collagen and fibrillin, and complex adhesive mechanisms involved in leukocyte migration and malaria. The 17 studies rely on a range of biochemical, biophysical, structural, electron-microscope, and cell-biology techniques, and in some cases combinations of them. The price is [pounds sterling]67, converted to dollars.
