Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have cadherin binding activity; calcium ion binding activity; and cytoskeletal protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion via plasma membrane cell adhesion molecules; cell-cell adhesion mediated by cadherin; and homophilic cell adhesion via plasma membrane adhesion molecules. Predicted to localize to adherens junction; catenin complex; and cell surface. Is expressed in central nervous system and retina. Orthologous to human CDH7 (cadherin 7).
