fascia adherens


fascia adherens
an extensive adherens junction analogous to the zonula adherens but occurring in cardiac myocytes, primarily in the transverse portions of intercalated disks; it has multiple dense attachment plaques acting as sites of insertion of actin filaments into the sarcolemma and thus linking the cellular membrane and contractile apparatus with those of adjacent cells.
