O.O. Piven Perturbations of adhesive complexes in a myocardium tissue as one of mechanisms of heart function disorders

The role of intercellular adhesion’s molecules in maintaining of adult heart functioning is considered. The adhesion complexes of cardiac tissues, structure and function of adherent junctions are reviewed. Using
example of original works, the function of intercellular adhesion proteins in maintenance of myocardium tissue architectures and its pumping function is surveyed, as well as their role in occurrence and development of some pathologies of heart.
