    It is important in that it helps the body know how to correctly control itself. Meaning that if you get an infection, cells must communicate with one another in order for the leukocytes to find where the cut is and destroy any bacteria so you dont get an infection!

    Cell recognition is defined as an active process giving rise to a specific response.

    Cell recognition is one of the ways by which cells communicate with one another. It is possible through specific cellular adhesion molecules on the surface of the cell.

    That's how a cell gets to know what work it has to be assigned.

    For example, a liver cell will only function as a liver cell as it is in the vicinity of other liver cell; which so it gets to know, by adhering to the adjacent liver cell.

    Hope that helped. :)

    Cells rely on the cell recognition proteins to distinguish each other. Cells need to be able to recognize each other so they can communicate the correct functions to the correct cells, and so they can identity and attack foreign invaders. If cells can't recognize each other, the immune system will attack them, even if they are part of your own body.
