Cell adhesion/recognition and signal transduction through glycosphingolipid microdomain

Glycoconjugate Journal
S Hakomori


Glycosphingolipids (GSLs) and sphingomyelin in animal cells are clustered and organized as membrane microdomains closely associated with various signal transducer molecules such as cSrc, Src family kinases, small G-proteins (e.g., RhoA, Ras), and focal adhesion kinase. GSL clustering in such microdomains causes adhesion to complementary GSLs on the surface of counterpart cells or presented on plastic surfaces, through carbohydrate-to-carbohydrate interaction. GSL-dependent cell adhesion in microdomain causes activation of the signal transducers, leading to cell phenotypic changes. A retrospective of the development of this concept, and current status of our studies, are presented.

Adhesion Molecules in Health and Disease

Cell adhesion molecules are a subset of cell adhesion proteins located on the cell surface involved in binding with other cells or with the extracellular matrix in the process called cell adhesion. In essence, cell adhesion molecules help cells stick to each other and to their surroundings. Cell adhesion is a crucial component in maintaining tissue structure and function. Discover the latest research on adhesion molecule and their role in health and disease here.
