JCB65: Cell Adhesion and Migration
In the fourth collection celebrating our 65th anniversary, we retrace fundamental discoveries that shaped our understanding of cell–cell and cell–matrix interactions, including basic insights into the components of cell–cell junctions and the ways in which cells adhere to substrates, studies establishing how adhesion receptors signal and fulfill essential roles in regulating gene expression, proliferation, polarity, migration, development, and differentiation. Find work that dissects how contractility drives adhesion formation and how adhesion-mediated responses contribute to development and disease, including cancer. If we missed your favorite JCB study, tweet to @JCellBiol using the hashtag #JCB65, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
