Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to enable cadherin binding activity and calcium ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cell-cell adhesion via plasma-membrane adhesion molecules. Predicted to act upstream of or within cell adhesion. Located in 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).
