How can you use “adhesion” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • For example, in the related Rip1-Tag5 model, the vascular addressins GlyCAM-1 and MAdCAM-1 are expressed in pre-malignant islets, but down-regulated in solid tumors; their downregulation coincides with lack of infiltration in this model of spontaneous anti-tumor immunity [ 19 ] . It is possible that sub-lethal radiation is altering the expression of endothelial adhesion molecules allowing binding and extravasation of activated tumor-specific lymphocytes.

  • We detected a small increase in expression of ICAM1 ( intercellular adhesion molecule 1 ) in CC (Fold-change = 1.9, p-value = 0.0081), which was also consistent with the literature [ 17 ] .

  • Expression of the adhesion molecule ICAM-1 was found to be approximately 1.6 times the level of control.

  • In particular, mutations of genes regulating cell adhesion molecules have been reported to be metastasis-fostering alterations [ 5 6 7 8 ] . In human breast cancers, several other genes have been found to be associated with metastasis, namely nm23 [ 9 10 ] , KAI1 [ 11 12 ] , mta1 [ 13 ] , KiSS1 [ 14 ] , PTEN/MMAC1 [ 15 16 ] and BRMS1 [ 17 ] .

  • This relatively high level of adhesion was inhibited by pre-incubation of endothelial monolayers with anti-MAdCAM-1 antibody.
