... metabolism. In the present review, we summarize the current knowledge of the moonlighting functions of FBA in bacteria. FBA is now recognized as a moonlighting protein in several bacterial species. To date, FBA has been shown to mediate adhesion to mammalian cells and the binding of human plasminogen...

In the present study, we demonstrated that, in contrast with previous reports, integrin-mediated adhesion did...

... recurrences of urinary tract infections compared with women without diabetes. Type 1 fimbriae are the most important virulence factors used not only for adhesion of E. coli in the urinary tract, but also for the colonization by E. coli in patients with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis. It appears...

Paracellular and transcellular leucocyte transmigration are regulated by adhesion molecules such as PECAM-1...

It is probable that at these sites integrins regulate adhesion and at the same time physically constrain and direct the response to soluble growth factors towards...

However, based on in vitro studies using wortmannin and LY294002, there is evidence for an important role for PI 3-kinases in regulating a broad range of functional platelet responses, including primary platelet adhesion, cytoskeletal remodelling and platelet aggregation. One of the critical platelet...
