Cadherins constitute a superfamily of cell-cell interaction molecules that participate in morphogenetic processes of animal development. Fat cadherins are the largest members of this superfamily, with 34 extracellular cadherin repeats. Classic Fat, identified in Drosophila, is known to regulate cell proliferation and planar cell polarity. Although 4(More)
The adherens junction (AJ) plays a crucial role in maintaining cell-cell adhesion in epithelial tissues. Previous studies show that KIFC3, a minus end-directed kinesin motor, moves into AJs via microtubules that grow from clusters of CAMSAP3 (also known as Nezha), a protein that binds microtubule minus ends. The function of junction-associated KIFC3,(More)
