cell adhesion to plastic - (Jun/20/2007 )
I need to know which adhesion molecules are responsible for the adhesion of cells to cell culture dishes. Are these described and discussed in some publication? Thank You.
I think it is unspecific binding of integrins to plastic...
I think Cadherin is also possible. The binding of cadherin is calcium dependent and can be disrupted by EDTA.
check for cell adhesion molecules in text books.
