gamma catenin

A multi-functional catenin that is highly homologous to beta catenin. Gamma catenin binds cadherins and helps link their cytoplasmic tails to actin in the cytoskeleton via alpha catenin. It is also found in desmosomes where it mediates the link between desmosomal cadherins and desmoplakin.
