Plakophilin/Delta catenin (IPR028435)

Short name: Plakophilin/d_Catenin

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


The p120 subfamily of armadillo-related proteins includes deta-catenin, ARVCF (armadillo repeat gene deleted in Velo-Cardio-Facial syndrome), p0071/plakophilin-4, and plakophilins 1-3 [PMID: 15819401]. These proteins are involved in mediating cell-cell adhesion. Besides their junctional localisation, these proteins can be found in the cytoplasm and nucleus where they play additional roles [PMID: 17264675, PMID: 16765467, PMID: 17028013].
