Class: Intercellular_Junction

The Cell_Cell_Contact_Zone and the Intercellular_Junction are not the same. The junction only refers to the bridging complex and not the larger region where the junction resides. The intercellular_Junction is part of a larger cell-cell contact zone. The cell-cell contact zone may also contain additional junctions and cellular machinery related to the function of the junction.
