Cadherins control intercellular adhesion in epithelial cells. This property relies on the ability to recruit actin filaments at adherens junctions via beta-catenin and alpha-catenin. A recent study shows that Echinoid, a member of the immunoglobulin domain containing protein family, is a modulator of intercellular adhesion in Drosophila that controls cell sorting.
