Cell–cell adhesion is prime for the improvement and homeostasis of animal tissues and organs. Adherens junctions (AJs) are the easiest understood cell-cell adhesion complexes. during this quantity, a gaggle of the world over famous specialists stories AJ biology over a variety of association; from atoms to molecules, to protein complexes, molecular networks, cells, tissues, and total animal improvement. AJs have additionally been an essential component of animal evolution, and play relevant roles in melanoma improvement, pathogen an infection and different ailments. This booklet addresses significant questions encompassing AJ biology.
• How did AJs evolve?
• How do cadherins and catenins engage to gather AJs and mediate adhesion?
• How do AJs interface with different mobile equipment to couple adhesion with the complete telephone?
• How do AJs have an effect on phone behaviour and multicellular improvement?
• How can irregular AJ job bring about disease?
