Term Information [More information on apical junction complex]

Accession
GO:0043296
Name
apical junction complex
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
apical cell junction complex, apical junction
Definition
A functional unit located near the cell apex at the points of contact between epithelial cells, which in vertebrates is composed of the tight junction, the zonula adherens, and desmosomes and in some invertebrates, such as Drosophila, is composed of the subapical complex (SAC), the zonula adherens and the septate junction. Functions in the regulation of cell polarity, tissue integrity and intercellular adhesion and permeability. Source: PMID:12525486, PMID:15196556, GOC:go_curators, GOC:kmv
