Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have calcium ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion via plasma membrane cell adhesion molecules; homophilic cell adhesion via plasma membrane adhesion molecules; and labyrinthine layer development. Localizes to the cell-cell junction. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; extraembryonic component; heart; placenta; and retina. Orthologous to human PCDH12 (protocadherin 12).
