a. Tight Junction – membranes of adjacent cells converge and fuse. The area of fusion surrounds the cell like a belt and that junction closes the space between cells. Typically joins cells that form sheetlike layers such as those in the digestive tract. b. Desmosome - rivets or spot welds, adjacent skin cells, enabling them to form a reinforced structural unit. c. Gap Juntions - Cell membranes of certain other cells, such as those in heart muscle are interconnected b tubular channels. Allow ions and small other molecules to move between them. 5. What are some of the events of cellular adhesion? a. CAMs guide cells on the move. White blood cell moving in the bloodstream on way to a splinter, white blood cell must slow down in the turbulent blood stream. The Cellular Adhesion molecules called selectin does this by coating the cell and providing traction. Questions Page 90 1. What are the functions of the endoplasmic reticulum? a.
