Reproducible techniques for the identification of new cell adhesion proteins, as well as the characterization of independent adhesive structures, are provided in this text by an international authorship experienced in their use. These methods should enable both novice and expert researchers to identify and clone new adhesion proteins; to produce inhibitors of the adhesive activity; to develop biological models to assay sell-to-matrix and cell-to-cell adhesion in vitro; and to measure the signalling activities of adhesion ...
