Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable cadherin binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cell-cell adhesion and cell-cell junction assembly. Predicted to act upstream of or within calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion via plasma membrane cell adhesion molecules. Located in cytoplasm; nucleus; and plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; central nervous system; forelimb bud; metanephros; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in DiGeorge syndrome. Orthologous to human ARVCF (ARVCF delta catenin family member).
