E-cadherin is a ubiquitous component of lateral membranes in epithelial tissues and is required to form the first lateral membrane domains in development. Here, we identify ankyrin-G as a molecular partner of E-cadherin and demonstrate that ankyrin-G and beta-2-spectrin are required for accumulation of E-cadherin at the lateral membrane in both epithelial… CONTINUE READING
