The molecules are much more ordered than in other intercellular junctions and the ordering is crucial for strong adhesion.
Most compounds partitioning into the skin are known to intercalate via the intercellular lipid lamellae, however, penetration via keratinized comeocytes is most likely to occur too.
Positivity was defined as distinct, condensed, continuous immunoreactivity localized to the intercellular junctions of keratinocytes, in essentially the same pattern as that seen in immunofluorescence studies.
5) investigated the levels of soluble endothelial adhesion molecules (CAMs) and vascular cell adhesion molecule (VCAM-1) intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and E-selectin were compared between patients with poor coronary collaterals and patients with well-developed collaterals in a study published in 2004.

Scientists have made an unanticipated discovery in mice that interferon-gamma, a type of protein primarily used by the immune system for intercellular communication, acts as a promoter for the deadly form of skin cancer known as melanoma.
Then they were subjected to a vacuum perfusion process to force the bacterial cells into the intercellular spaces in the leaves.
For cell and developmental biologists wanting the specifics of how cells interact in multicellular organisms, this text covers such activities, which reach back over 600 million years and are fundamental to tissue integrity and the functions of selective permeability and intercellular transport.
They are composed of densely staining tissue with small isodiametric cells and reduced intercellular spaces.
These multicellular behaviors make it reasonable to infer that Neisseria engage in cell-cell communication, but the molecules that mediate intercellular communication have not been well-characterized in Neisseria.
The most surprising insight to arise from NO research is that there exists a fundamentally different form of intercellular signaling.
