...Ashraf Al-Amoudi; Achilleas S. Frangakis Desmosomes are cadherin-based intercellular junctions that primarily provide mechanical stability to tissues such as epithelia and cardiac muscle. Desmosomal cadherins, which are Ca 2+ -dependent adhesion molecules, are of central importance in mediating...

...David Garrod; Tomomi E. Kimura We have developed a new concept of cell–cell adhesion termed ‘hyper-adhesion’, the very strong adhesion adopted by desmosomes. This uniquely desmosomal property accounts for their ability to provide the intercellular links in the desmosome–intermediate filament...

...Gethin Rh. Owen; Devrim Acehan; K.D. Derr; William J. Rice; David L. Stokes Desmosomes are a complex assembly of protein molecules that form at the cell surface and mediate cell–cell adhesion. Much is known about the composition of desmosomes and there is an established consensus for the location...
