Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Is predicted to enable cadherin binding activity and calcium ion binding activity. Involved in calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion via plasma membrane cell adhesion molecules; cell morphogenesis; and cell-cell junction organization. Predicted to be located in plasma membrane. Predicted to be integral component of membrane. Predicted to be part of catenin complex. Predicted to be active in adherens junction. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; heart; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human CDH20 (cadherin 20).
