Adherens junctions are composed of a cadherin-catenin complex and its associated proteins. Recently, an increasing number of novel members of adherens junctions, including membrane and PDZ proteins, have been reported. Interactions among these components in adherens junctions seem to be dynamically regulated during the formation of adherens junction complexes in epithelial cells.
