Description of Beta catenin

Beta catenin: A multi-functional catenin that participates in CELL ADHESION and nuclear signaling. Beta catenin binds CADHERINS and helps link their cytoplasmic tails to the ACTIN in the CYTOSKELETON via ALPHA CATENIN. It also serves as a transcriptional co-activator and downstream component of $WNT PROTEIN-$mediated SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION PATHWAYS.
