Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
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 homophilic cell adhesion via plasma membrane adhesion molecules. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; integral component of synaptic membrane; and neuron projection. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in breast carcinoma and prostate cancer. Orthologous to human CADM1 (cell adhesion molecule 1).
