Intercellar junctions where cell membranes are in intimate contact (nexuses) are very abundant in the epithelium of normal human cervix. Squamous carcinoma cells are deficient in nexuses although a rare nexus is seen. Nexuses may be involved in normal growth regulation, while a deficiency of nexuses may be related to the invasive property of malignant growth.
