Cell adhesion is a fundamental determinant of embryonic development and organogenesis.Cellular Adhesion in Development and Disease, volume 112 inCurrent Topics in Developmental Biology, comprehensively surveys current developments in understanding how adhesion systems affect organismal development. Topics covered include nectins, nectin-like molecules, and afadin in development; cadherin adhesion, signaling, and morphogenesis; endothelial cell junctions; epidermal development and barrier formation; and more.
