FZD3 shows an asymmetric distribution in the membrane of the mouse inner-ear sensory hair cells in a manner that depends on a direct interaction with VANGL2 (Montcouquiol et al, 2006). In this respect, the vertebrate PCP pathway differs from that of flies, where Vangl2 and Fz are localized to opposing membranes within a single cell (reviewed in Maung and Jenny, 2011). Note that although this reaction depicts a complex of VANGL2:FZD3 with SCRIB, the existence of this ternary complex has not been demonstrated.
