Name the different cell junctions found in tissues.
The different types of cell junctions found in the tissues are:
i) Adhering junction: They are also known as anchoring junctions as they provide the tissues with structural integrity and holds the cells together. They are found largely in the organs which go through high mechanical stress like heart and skin.
ii) Gap junction: They are also known as communicating junctions as they take part in cell signalling in the brain and they are also involved in retinal and skin cells differentiation.
iii) Tight Junction: They are also known as occluding junctions and they are responsible for acting as a barrier between the exchange of water and solutes in epithelial cells.
