Webinar: Advances in Live Cell Imaging - Skin Cell Motility: Integrins Lead the Way
In this webinar presented by Leica Microsystems and LabRoots you will learn about efforts to dissect mechanisms that underlie the directed migration of epidermal keratinocytes as they populate wounds or in cancer:
The structure and function of matrix adhesion sites (focal contacts and hemidesmosomes) in skin cells (keratinocytes) in vivo and in vitro.
The structural and signaling roles of complexes of hemidesmosome proteins in both adhesion and migration of keratinocytes.
The interplay of focal contacts and hemidesmosome protein complexes in the generation of traction forces needed to move a keratinocyte forward.
