Unformatted text preview: ial cells that link the binding site between adjacent cells to the intracellular microfilaments composed of actin. A diverse set of proteins most of which are anchored to the cell membrane usually by a transmembrane domain or sometimes by a specialized glycolipid anchor. A polysaccharide composed of a long linear chain of glucose molecules. Most abundant protein in the extracellular matrix; undergoes a considerable amount of posttranslational modification. Junction complexes through which intermediate filaments of adjacent cells are linked together. fibronectin gap junctions glycosaminoglycan G- protein hemidesmosomes integrins laminin ligands plasmodesmata proteoglycans receptors tight junctions Title abscisic acid aplastic atrichoblasts auxins brassinosteroids clonal sector cryptochromes A glycoprotein heterodimer found in basal lamina that possesses specific domains capable of interacting with many other molecules such as collagen and heparin. Specialized juxtapositions of apposing membranes through which small molecules (less than about 5kD) pass from one cell to another. Structural components of proteoglycans that are composed of repeating disaccharide subunits containing acidic sugars. Trimeric- membrane- bound proteins forming a receptor that in the active state may bind GTP. Junctions that serve to anchor intermediate filaments in a cell to the basal lamina. A family of membrane associated cell surface proteins. Protein found in layers, or laminae, in the basal lamina between the epithelium and mesenchyme; composed of three different protein chains wound around each other. Signaling molecules that interact w...
