Proteins forming zona adherins are Cadherins or Desmoglein/Desmocollin

  1. Proteins forming zona adherins are Cadherins or Desmoglein/Desmocollin.

  2. Vit D have cytoplasmic or nuclear receptors ?

  • Cadherin also has role.

  • Vit D has cytoplasmic receptor but final action occurs through interaction with nucleus.Proteins forming zona adherins are Cadherins or Desmoglein/Desmocollin

  1. The proteins forming zonula adherens are Ca2┬▒dependent cell adhesion molecules (members of the desmoglein and desmocollin families of cadherins). Demoglein and desmocollin come under the desmosomal cadherin family of proteins.

  2. Vitamin D receptors are located in cytoplasm.
