    ..Such influence may potentially aid in enhancing key cellular events such as, for example, neo-osteogenesis on implanted orthopaedic surfaces. ..

    ..We conclude that integrin-mediated responses to external mechanical strain are differentially modulated in cells that have the same spreading area but different geometries, and do not only depend on mere cell size. ..

    ..Therefore, comparative studies of cell adhesion to different biomaterial substrates can be performed using immunogold-labelling with gold enhancement. ..

  6. Li B, Zhuang L, Reinhard M, Trueb B. The lipoma preferred partner LPP interacts with alpha-actinin. J Cell Sci. 2003;116:1359-66 pubmed
    ..It is likely that this difference leads to slightly different roles played by LPP and zyxin during the assembly and disassembly of focal adhesions. ..
  7. Ivanov D, Philippova M, Tkachuk V, Erne P, Resink T. Cell adhesion molecule T-cadherin regulates vascular cell adhesion, phenotype and motility. Exp Cell Res. 2004;293:207-18 pubmed
    ..The data suggest that T-cad acts as an anti-adhesive signal for vascular cells, thus modulating vascular cell phenotype and migration properties. ..
  8. Li B, Zhuang L, Trueb B. Zyxin interacts with the SH3 domains of the cytoskeletal proteins LIM-nebulette and Lasp-1. J Biol Chem. 2004;279:20401-10 pubmed
    ..LIM-nebulette reveals a subcellular distribution at focal adhesions similar to Lasp-1. Thus, LIM-nebulette, Lasp-1, and zyxin may play an important role in the organization of focal adhesions. ..

    ..We found distinct changes in cell architecture upon osteogenic differentiation thus providing evidence for the connection between cell shape and functional state. ..
