09:05, 25 May 2011 Epithelium.jpg (file) 1.38 MB Biopsy of exocervix, showing normal squamous epithelium. Epithelium is held together by cell junctions, allowing the individual cells to function as a tissue. Student z3292208. Copyright: Under Creative Commons - You are free: to Share — to copy, dist 1
11:37, 11 May 2011 Tracheal hemidesmosomes.JPEG (file) 121 KB Electron microscopy of hemidesmosomes in the trachea of mice. Figure A shows well defined darkened hemidesmosomes at the arrows whereas in figure B they are less defined and visible. Hemidesmosomes attach cells to the extracellular matrix. Copyright: Thi 1

21:39, 4 May 2011 Cadherin molecules.jpg (file) 106 KB A three dimensional diagram of two linked cadherin molecules, the proteins which bind together adherens juntions between cells to form epithelial sheets. This shows how only two like cadherin molecules are able to bind together. Copyright: This photo bel 1
12:01, 22 April 2011 Desmosome image.png (file) 139 KB A desmosome, also known as macula adherens, is a cell structure specialized for cell-to-cell adhesion in animal cells. A type of junctional complex, they are localized spot-like adhesions randomly arranged on the lateral sides of plasma membranes. Copyri 1
12:01, 6 April 2011 Adherens Junction Diagram.jpg (file) 140 KB A simplified diagram of an Adherens Junction showing the mechanical link between the two cells bound by identical cadherin molecules from each cell. These molecules bind to like molecules in neighbouring cells, in doing so joining a bundle of actin filame 1
