There a four major families of membrane-associated cell adhesion proteins. Some of these are involved in maintaining the stability of multicellular tissues, some are of prime importance in tissue organisation during development, and yet others are involved in recruitment to sites of inflammation, or other activities in the immune system. Within this last category are found the evolutionary precursors of the immune system in lower animals.
