P19 mouse embryonal carcinoma cells were fixed with methanol and stained using an antibody that specifically binds the protein &#945;-catenin. The &#945;-catenin protein is concentrated at the cell surface where it functions to anchor cell surface cadherin cell adhesion proteins to the intracellular cytoskeleton. The locations of &#945;-catenin proteins were visualized by scanning laser confocal microscopy. These are average size animal cells.
