Adherens Junctions

Some articles on adherens junctions, junctions:

Smooth Muscle Tissue - Structure - Molecular Structure - Other Tensile Structures
... are connected to other intermediate filaments via dense bodies, which eventually are attached to adherens junctions (also called focal adhesions) in the cell ... The adherens junctions consist of large number of proteins including α-actinin, vinculin and cytoskeletal actin ... The adherens junctions are scattered around dense bands that are circumfering the smooth muscle cell in a rib-like pattern ...
Cell Junction - Types - Anchoring Junctions - Adherens Junctions
... Adherens junctions share the characteristic of anchoring cells through their cytoplasmic actin filaments ... There is considerable morphologic diversity among adherens junctions ... The band-type of adherens junctions is associated with bundles of actin filaments that also encircle the cell just below the plasma membrane ...
PTPRM - Cadherin-dependent Adhesion
... where they commonly stabilize cell–cell junctions known as adherens junctions ... Cadherins stabilize adherens junctions through the interaction of the cadherin cytoplasmic domains with catenin proteins, such as p120-catenin, beta-catenin and alpha-catenin ... receptor, a protein that is also localized to adherens junctions ...
