Constituents: 50% Glycerol, 50mM Sodium chloride, 25mM HEPES, 1mM EDTA, pH 7.5
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.
