CTNNBL is a family of eukaryotic nuclear proteins of the catenin-beta-like 1 type that contain an armadillo motif. A human nuclear protein with this domain is thought to have a role in apoptosis. The interaction of CTNNBL1 with its known partners (the Prp19-CDC5L complex and AID) is mediated by recognition of NLS (nuclear localization signal) motifs. The RNA-splicing factor Prp31 is also an interactor, with recognition also occurring through the NLS. CTNNBL1 uses its central armadillo (ARM) domain to bind NLS-containing partners.
