Organizing Junctions at the Cell-Cell Interface


The zonula adherens (ZA) is a specialized cadherin-based structure found at the contacts between epithelial cells. Meng et al. (2008) now identify a protein complex containing the microtubule minus-end-binding protein Nezha, which provides a critical link between microtubules and cadherins in ZA biogenesis and maintenance.
