GEI-16 : a novel component of the C. elegans fibrous organelle

Hetherington, Suzannah Bree


Animal tissues are maintained by the correct cell-cell contacts and cellular shape. Cell shape and associations are governed by the combined action of the filament cytoskeleton in association with adhesion complexes. Desmosomes and hemidesmosomes are one such class of adhesion complex. From worms to humans epithelial tissues are flattened and made resistant to mechanical stress by desmosomes and hemidesmosomes. These membrane-associated junction complexes are attached to the intermediate...[Show more]
