Localizes to several cellular components, including basolateral plasma membrane; bicellular tight junction; and intercalated disc. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human CXADR (CXADR Ig-like cell adhesion molecule).
