Skin Cell Motility: Integrins Lead the Way

You will learn about efforts to dissect mechanisms that underlie the directed migration of epidermal keratinocytes as they populate wounds or in cancer.

Learning outcomes:

  • 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.
