Abstract

Cell adhesion molecules are well-known membrane glycoproteins widely expressed during embryonic development that play a crucial role in cell division, migration and differentiation. We investigated the cell-matrix relationship using N-CAM and pan-cadherin adhesion molecules in the adriamycin-induced esophageal atresia (EA) rat model in the hope of finding a clue to the mechanisms of this unique anomaly.
