Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have cadherin binding activity and calcium ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion via plasma membrane cell adhesion molecules; cell-cell adhesion mediated by cadherin; and cell-cell junction organization. Localizes to caveola and neuromuscular junction. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and limb. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant non-syndromic intellectual disability 3. Orthologous to human CDH15 (cadherin 15).
