...Zackie Aktary; Stephen Kulak; John Mackey; Nadia Jahroudi; Manijeh Pasdar Summary Plakoglobin (γ-catenin), a constituent of the adherens junction and desmosomes, has signaling capabilities typically associated with tumor/metastasis suppression through mechanisms that remain undefined. To determine...

.... Loss of Rnd3 expression is also associated with resistance to cisplatin-mediated apoptosis in keratinocytes and this resistance is mediated through the desmosomal protein plakoglobin. We propose a novel plakoglobin-dependent role for Rnd3 in the regulation of keratinocyte cell death. To rescue...

...-desmosomal cadherins. Head and armadillo repeat domains both interacted with plakoglobin by binding to different sites. Our data suggest that, in addition to plakoglobin, p0071 is the second armadillo protein present in both types of adhesive junctions and may play a role in regulating crosstalk between...

... expression occur independently of β-catenin and correlate with repression of transcription from Tcf/Lef-responsive promoters. Moreover, during differentiation,β-catenin-null cells assemble normal intercellular adhesion junctions owing to the substitution of β-catenin with plakoglobin, whereas the expression...

...Jacob Zhurinsky; Michael Shtutman; Avri Ben-Ze′ev ABSTRACT β-Catenin can play different roles in the cell, including one as a structural protein at cell-cell adherens junctions and another as a transcriptional activator mediating Wnt signal transduction. Plakoglobin (γ-catenin), a close homolog...

...James K. Wahl; Jill E. Nieset; Paula A. Sacco-Bubulya; Tammy M. Sadler; Keith R. Johnson; Margaret J. Wheelock ABSTRACT Beta-catenin and plakoglobin are members of the armadillo family of proteins and were first identified as components of intercellular adhering junctions. In the adherens junction...

... structure containing a few major proteins including desmoplakins and the armadillo family member plakoglobin. Desmosomal cadherins are putative cell-cell adhesion molecules and we have tested their adhesive capacity using a transfection approach in mouse L cells. We find that L cells expressing either one...

... with the cytoskeleton via cytoplasmic proteins known as catenins. Three catenins, α-catenin, β-catenin and γ-catenin (also known as plakoglobin), have been identified. β-catenin or plakoglobin is associated directly with the cadherin; α-catenin binds to β-catenin/plakoglobin and serves to link the cadherin/catenin...

(2) Staining for vinculin was reduced in cell-cell adhesions situated at the apical region of subconfluent, confluent and postconfluent mono- layers. Staining for F-actin and plakoglobin was retained at this region in estradiol-induced cells. (3) vinculin...
