Term Detail
GO term:adherens junction organization
Synonym: adherens junction assembly and maintenance
Synonym: adherens junction organisation
GO id:GO:0034332
Definition:A process that is carried out at the cellular level which results in the assembly, arrangement of constituent parts, or disassembly of an adherens junction. An adherens junction is a cell junction at which the cytoplasmic face of the plasma membrane is attached to actin filaments.
