Cadherin-mediated cell-cell adhesion is a dynamic process that is regulated during embryonic development, cell migration, and differentiation. Different cadherins are expressed in specific tissues consistent with their roles in cell type recognition. In this study, we examine the formation of N-cadherin-dependent cell-cell contacts in fibroblasts and myoblasts. In contrast to E-cadherin, both endogenous and ectopically expressed N-cadherin shuttles between an intracellular and a plasma membrane… CONTINUE READING
