Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.3.0)
Predicted to enable identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in heterophilic cell-cell adhesion via plasma membrane cell adhesion molecules and homophilic cell adhesion via plasma membrane adhesion molecules. Predicted to act upstream of or within cell-cell adhesion. Predicted to be located in plasma membrane. Predicted to be active in adherens junction. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nose; respiratory system; and skin. Orthologous to human NECTIN4 (nectin cell adhesion molecule 4).
