Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable several functions, including alpha-catenin binding activity; beta-catenin binding activity; and cell adhesion molecule binding activity. Predicted to be involved in CD4-positive, alpha-beta T cell activation and cell-cell adhesion via plasma-membrane adhesion molecules. Predicted to act upstream of or within cell adhesion. Predicted to be located in microtubule cytoskeleton and plasma membrane. Predicted to be part of catenin complex. Is expressed in brain; gut; male reproductive gland or organ; and retina. Orthologous to human CDH26 (cadherin 26).
