Abstract

The binding interactions between cell surface receptors and local bioactive ligands were studied. The interaction served as the principal mechanism by which the cells surveyed their microenvironment and accordingly modulated their behaviors like proliferation, differentiation, migration and suicide. It was observed that the cells recognized and responded to adhesive interactions with the insoluble extracellular matrix (ECM).
