Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have cadherin binding activity and calcium ion 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 cell-cell junction organization. Predicted to localize to adherens junction and catenin complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; ear; genitourinary system; integumental system; and nervous system. Orthologous to human CDH19 (cadherin 19).
