focal adhesion assembly Gene Set

Dataset GO Biological Process Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type biological process
Description The aggregation and bonding together of a set of components to form a focal adhesion, a complex of intracellular signaling and structural proteins that provides a structural link between the internal actin cytoskeleton and the ECM, and also function as a locus of signal transduction activity.
