Adhesion molecules

Cellular adhesion molecules (CAMs) are transmembrane proteins that link the cytoskeleton and intracellular signaling cascades with the extracellular environment.  There are four families of cell adhesion molecules, the Immunoglobulin superfamily (IgSF) which bind to integrins, Selectins, which are Ca2+-dependent CAMs, Integrins, which bind IgSFs and extracellular matrix ligands, and Cadherins, also Ca2+-dependent CAMs.  Cell adhesion molecules have roles in cell proliferation, differentiation, motility, trafficking, apoptosis and tissue architecture, and their dysregulation is common in cancer.
