Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits PDZ domain binding activity; protein homodimerization activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including calcium-independent cell-cell adhesion via plasma membrane cell-adhesion molecules; heterophilic cell-cell adhesion via plasma membrane cell adhesion molecules; and synapse organization. Localizes to several cellular components, including Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; cell body fiber; and integral component of synaptic membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including cranium; nervous system; sensory organ; tooth; and urinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in breast carcinoma and prostate cancer. Orthologous to human CADM1 (cell adhesion molecule 1).
