Understanding these cell junctions
will be important for future biotechnology applications.
Consistent with this study, cadmium causes slight fragmentation of Setoli cell junctions
in the absence of edema or necrosis of testicular tissues in rat at 3 mg/kg (17).
The key factor is the effect that it has on desmosomes, which are specialized cell junctions
playing a pivotal role in the attachment of cells to each other.
In addition to increasing the efflux of chloride ions through a protein channel called CFTR, it weakens cell junctions
to allow a rapid outflow of counterbalancing sodium ions and water between the cells.
Tumor cells usually contain intermediate filaments, have cell junctions
, and may contain glycogen, dense core granules, and neurotubles.
Cdc42 is crucial for the maturation of primordial cell junctions
in keratinocytes independent of Racl.
Those with the DNA variant suffer a buildup of glutamate at nerve cell junctions
INDIAN NEUROSCIENTISTS have discovered details of defects in brain cell junctions
that cause the debilitating emotional symptoms of Fragile X Syndrome ( FXS).
In addition, D-penicillamine binding constant is high enough that transfer of toxic minerals at cell junctions
does not occur.
Ordinarily, glutamate is quickly released from its receptor sites and removed from these nerve cell junctions
The individual tumor cells possessed several primitive cell junctions
The simple addition of electrodes disturbs cell junctions
