Network and reservoir of extra cellular and signalling molecules which are secreted locally to ensure cell and tissue cohesion
What are Focal Adhesions?
Integrin based cell matrix physical contacts that transducer and integrate mechanical and biochemical cues from the environment through the recruitment of intracellular multi protein assemblies connected to Actin cytoskeleton
