Contents:
Integrins: an overview of structural and functional aspects 1 / Erik H.J. Danen -- Integrins in extracellular matrix assembly / Roumen Pankov and Katherine Clark -- The role of integrins in cell migration / Bernhard Wehrle-Haller -- The essence of integrin signal transduction: assembly of dynamic scaffolds and cross-talk with other receptors / Sara Cabodi and Paola Defilippi -- C. elegans integrins / Michel Labouesse and Elisabeth Georges-Labouesse -- Integrins and associated proteins in Drosophila development / Maithreyi Narasimha and Nicholas H. Brown -- Integrins in the skin / Cord Brakebusch -- Integrins in skeletal cell function and development / Michael A. Horton and Miep H. Helfrich -- Insights into integrin function in skeletal muscle / Lisa K. Rogers and Ulrike Mayer -- The role of integrins in vasculogenesis and angiogenesis / Andrew R. Reynolds, Kate A. Scott, and Kairbaan M. Hodivala-Dilke -- Integrins in urogenital development / Jordan A. Kreidberg -- Integrin regulation of mammary gland development / Matthew J. Naylor and Charles H. Streuli -- Cell adhesion in nervous system development: integrin functions in glial cells / Claudia S. Barros and Ulrich Muller -- Roles for integrins and associated proteins in the haematopoietic system / Alessandra Cambi, Suzanne F.G. van Helden, and Carl G. Figdor.
Summary: Cell adhesion is essential for the organization of multicellular organisms. Indeed, various types of cell adhesion receptors, including cadherins and integrins are present in animals ranging from nematodes and insects to vertebrates. In this book, we focus on the integrin family, which is shared among all metazoans but has expanded considerably with vertebrate evolution. Since the cloning of the first integrin subunit, some twenty years ago, integrin biology has been--and still is--a topic of intense study. Integrin-mediated adhesion is a regulated process that, in turn, regulates the organizati.
