N-cadherin juxtamembrane domain modulates voltage-gated Ca2+ current via RhoA GTPase and Rho-associated kinase.

The juxtamembrane domain (JMD) of N-cadherin cytoplasmic tail is an important regulatory region of the clustering and adhesion activities of the protein. In addition, the JMD binds a diversity of proteins capable of modifying intracellular processes including cytoskeletal rearrangement mediated by Rho GTPases. These GTPases also function as regulators of… (More)
