Uvomorulin-catenin complex: Cytoplasmic anchorage of a Ca2+-dependent cell adhesion molecule

Authors


Abstract

The cytoplasmic domain of the cell adhesion molecule uvomorulin associates with three independent proteins, named catenins, which are structurally related in different cell types of various species. This complex formation connects uvnomorulin and cytoskeletal structures and might, moreover, be involved in other adhesion-dependent mechanisms.
