Putrescine-promoted mutual adhesiveness of HeLa cells from density-inhibited suspension cultures

Journal of the National Cancer Institute
J J Deman, E A Bruyneel


The mutual adhesiveness of HeLa cells harvested from density-inhibited suspension cultures was significantly enhanced by the addition of putrescine. No significant effect was observed on the adhesiveness of HeLa cells harvested from fast-growing suspension cultures. The effect on density-inhibited cells was abolished by previous treatment of the cells with neuraminidase.

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.
