|Function||Common junctional plaque protein. The membrane- associated plaques are architectural elements in an important strategic position to influence the arrangement and function of both the cytoskeleton and the cells within the tissue. The presence of plakoglobin in both the desmosomes and in the intermediate junctions suggests that it plays a central role in the structure and function of submembranous plaques. Acts as a substrate for VE-PTP and is required by it to stimulate VE- cadherin function in endothelial cells. Can replace beta-catenin in E-cadherin/catenin adhesion complexes which are proposed to couple cadherins to the actin cytoskeleton (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell junction, adherens junction. Cell junction, desmosome. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Note=Cytoplasmic in a soluble and membrane-associated form|

It recognizes a protein of 80-87kDa, identified as gamma-catenin. The catenins (α, β, γ and δ) are ubiquitously expressed, cytoplasmic proteins that associate with E-cadherin at cellular junctions. Catenin/cadherin complexes play an important role in mediating cellular adhesion. α T-catenin, also referred to as VR22, is a 895-amino acid protein that is most abundantly expressed in cardio-myocytes and in the peritubular myoid cells of the testis. α T-catenin binds to α E-catenin as well as to β-catenin, and it functions to inhibit Wnt signaling. CTNNA3, the gene that encodes for α-T-catenin, is located on chromosome 10, and mutations in this gene show a strong correlation to late-onset Alzheimer s disease (LOAD) as well as to dilated cardiomyopathy.
