Intercalated disc protein, mXinα, suppresses p120-catenin-induced branching phenotype via its interactions with p120-catenin and cortactin.


The Xin repeat-containing proteins, Xinα (Xirp1) and Xinβ (Xirp2), localize to the intercalated discs (ICDs) of mammalian hearts. Mouse Xinα (mXinα) directly interacts with β-catenin and actin filaments, potentially coupling the N-cadherin/β-catenin complexes to the underlying actin cytoskeleton and modulating ICD integrity and function. Supporting this… (More)
