Target

  • Function
    Belongs to an adhesion system, probably together with the E-cadherin-catenin system, which plays a role in the organization of homotypic, interneuronal and heterotypic cell-cell adherens junctions (AJs). Nectin- and actin-filament-binding protein that connects nectin to the actin cytoskeleton.
  • Involvement in disease
    Note=A chromosomal aberration involving MLLT4 is associated with acute leukemias. Translocation t(6;11)(q27;q23) with MLL/HRX. The result is a rogue activator protein.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 dilute domain.
    Contains 1 FHA domain.
    Contains 1 PDZ (DHR) domain.
    Contains 2 Ras-associating domains.
  • Domain
    The PDZ/DHR domain interacts with the C-terminus of nectin and the Pro-rich N-terminus domain interacts with F-actin.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell junction > adherens junction. Not found at cell-matrix AJs.
