Results: αE-catenin and vinculin cooperate to promote the time-dependent reinforcement of cadherin-mediated adhesions. Conclusion: aE-catenin and vinculin form a mechanoresponsive link between cadherin and the underlying actin cytoskeleton. Significance: The force-dependent modulation of a-catenin and vinculin recruitment contributes to the development of cadherin adhesion strength.© 2013 by The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Inc.||Source Title:||Journal of Biological Chemistry||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/110800||ISSN:||00219258||DOI:||10.1074/jbc.M112.403774|
