The multi-functional protein β-catenin plays essential roles in cell-cell adhesion and nuclear signaling. Elucidation of the structures of β-catenin complexes is beginning to clarify how β-catenin uses the same surface to bind its various partners, and provides insights into how these interactions might be regulated.
