What binds animal cells together?

Animal cells are mostly bound together by what are known as intercellular junctions. There are three types of cell junctions: anchoring junctions, tight junctions and gap junctions. Of these, anchoring junctions, which include adherens junction, desmosomes and hemidesmosomes, help bind the animal cells together, in an extracellular matrix.

What types of cell junctions connect cells within tissues?

The apical surface does not have any cell junctions because it is a free surface exposed to things that are not epithelial cells. The lateral surfaces of an epithelial cell, which face the adjacent cells on either side contain tight junctions, adherens junctions, desmosomes and/or gap junctions. The basal surface of an epithelial cell adhere to extracellular materials like the basement membrane. Hemidesmosomes anchor the epithelium to the basement membrane in the basal surface.

What intercellular junction in which cells are bound together by fusion of the outer cell membrane is called what?

In vertebrates, there are three major types of cell junction:1. Adherens junctions, desmosomes and hemidesmosomes (anchoring junctions.)2. Gap junctions (communicating junction)3. Tight junctions (occluding junctions)Your question most likely is for the tight junction but more information in the question would be helpful.
