In the Drosophila eye, distribution of the IgCAMs Rst and Hbs is regulated by the adaptor protein Cindr.
Cindr functions in two converse processes, targeting Rst and Hbs for endocytic regulation and stabilizing Rst-Hbs complexes at cell junctions.
Hence, Cindr recapitulates both proposed functions of its mammalian orthologs Cd2ap and Cin85.
Regulation of Cindr is a key step for facilitating tissue plasticity during morphogenesis and maintaining functional structures in mature tissues.
