|Title:||The activation states of LFA-1 (αLβ2) and related integrins||Authors:||Cheng, Ming||Keywords:||DRNTU::Science::Biological sciences::Microbiology::Immunology||Issue Date:||2008||Source:||Cheng, M. (2008). The activation states of LFA-1 (αLβ2) and related integrins. Doctoral thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||Cell adhesion molecules, which are both receptors and ligands for receptors, are typically transmembrane proteins. They are composed of three domains: an intracellular domain that interacts with the cytoskeleton, a transmembrane domain and an extracellular domain that interacts either with other cell adhesion molecules on another cell or the component of the extracellular matrix (ECM) (Joseph-Silverstein and Silverstein, 1998). Their functions include adhesion, recognition and communication between cells and between cells and components of the extracellular matrix.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/38777||DOI:||10.32657/10356/38777||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
