Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits cadherin binding activity involved in cell-cell adhesion and identical protein binding activity. Involved in synapse assembly and synaptic membrane adhesion. Localizes to several cellular components, including the glutamatergic synapse; hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse; and integral component of synaptic membrane. Is expressed in limb; nervous system; sensory organ; and testis. Orthologous to human CDH9 (cadherin 9).
