Abstract:Lastly, direct force measurements are presented on polysialylated NCAM proteins to determine the effects of polysialic acid on both NCAM and C-cadherin mediated adhesion. Results indicate that polysialic acid inhibits both NCAM and cadherin adhesion by increasing the intermembrane repulsion. This inhibitory effect was dependant on both polysialic acid surface density and on ionic strength.
