The link between cell-cell adhesion and tumour progression

Cell adhesion is the binding of a cell to another cell. Cell adhesion can be homophilic or heterophilic. Homophilic adhesion is when the cell adhesion is caused by binding of similar adhesion molecules. Heterophilic adhesion, on the other hand, is where cell adhesion is facilitated by binding of different adhesion molecules.
