beta-catenin is a multifunctional protein involved both in cell adhesion and in activation of transcription. Calcium-dependent intercellular adhesion transmembrane glycoprotein E-cadherin interacts by its cytoplasmic domain with reciprocally bound alpha, beta and gamma catenin. beta-catenin links this complex through alpha-actinin to the cytoskeleton. Functional cadherin-catenin system is important for invasiveness of tumour cells. beta-catenin level in cytoplasm is controlled by glycogen synthase kinase-3 beta. When activity of this kinase is blocked (e.g. by excessive stimulation of Wnt signaling pathway), hypophosphorylated stable form of beta-catenin accumulates in the cytoplasm, translocates to the nucleus and activates transcription of genes including those that are involved in cell cycle control. As a result, cell division and neoplastic transformation are promoted.
IP-MS enrichment of CTNNB1 (LFQ intensity): CTNNB1 was enriched 28-fold from HCT116 lysate compared to background proteins, using the optimized IP-MS workflow with Pierce MS-Compatible Magnetic IP Kit protein A/G (Product # 90409) and CTNNB1 antibody (Product # MA1-10056). STRING database was used to identify the protein interactor list. See more information on IP-MS verification of antibody selectivity. IP-MS validation info.
