beta-Catenin: A Pivot Between Cell Adhesion and Wnt Signalling

Mariann Bienz. Curr Biol.

Abstract

Mutual adhesion of animal cells is intimately linked to Wnt signaling through a shared component: beta-catenin, or Armadillo in Drosophila. Recent work indicates how beta-catenin shifts from cell adhesion to Wnt signaling, a switch associated with epithelial-mesenchymal transitions and cancer.
