Dynamics of the InlA/E-cadherin interaction.

Entry of L. monocytogenes via the InlA/E-cadherin interaction.
(A) The bacterial protein InlA interacts with its lipid raft-associated receptor E-cadherin to promote the recruitment to the bacterial entry site of several members of the catenin family including p120, b-and a-catenin.
(B) Caveolin-1 participates in the clustering of E-cadherin and in the activation of Src, which in turn phosphorylates E-cadherin.
(C) E-cadherin phosphorylation triggers the ubiquitination of the receptor by the ubiquitin-ligase Hakai which is required for the subsequent recruitment of clathrin.
(D) Src is also involved in the phosphorylation of cortactin, which promotes Arp2/3 complex activation and actin polymerization.
