Sequence similarity between the Drosophila segment polarity protein Armadillo and the vertebrate adherens junction protein beta-catenin raised the possibility that adherens junctions function in transduction of intercellular signals like that mediated by Wingless/Wnt-1. To substantiate the sequence similarity, properties of Armadillo were evaluated for consistency with a junctional role. Armadillo is part of a membrane-associated complex. This complex includes Armadillo, a glycoprotein similar… CONTINUE READING
