Procedure establishing fusion-competent sites consists of two sequential events: the recruitment of adhesion complexes to lipid rafts and the organization of microrafts. The recruitment of cadherins to lipid rafts depends on the interaction with p120 catenin, whereas the organization of microrafts is controlled by a small G protein, Rac1. Filled squares, lipid rafts; circles and open squares, adhesion proteins.
