Catenin beta plays an important role in the Wnt signaling pathway and is essential for cell contacts. It has a major impact on development, cell proliferation and differentiation. A mutation in the gene leads to nuclear accumulation, which has been demonstrated in fibromatosis of the breast and abdomen.
