Conclusions

In conclusion we have shown that: (a) liver N-CAM is a functionally active adhesion molecule, (b) its expression during the morphogenetic processes occurring during Xenopus laevis metamorphosis correlates with morphological changes in the cell-to-cell interaction; (c) Thyroxine is not directely involved in the activation of the expression of liver N-CAM.
