The role of individual cells in the cellular society varies during development or regeneration. Cell adhesion also shows dynamic change in these processes. In some diseases, disorder is caused by the disturbance of a balance and a network in the cell society resulting from the abnormal cell adhesion and communication (e.g. cancer metastasis). New molecular findings as well as evolutional insight will be important to understand the mechanism of cell adhesion (proteins and glycoconjugates). From a viewpoint of cell sociology, various biological phenomena and diseases will be explicated.
