Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including alpha-catenin binding activity; beta-catenin binding activity; and cytoskeletal protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; epithelial cell development; and regulation of proteolysis. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Schmidt-Lanterman incisure; axon; and plasma membrane protein complex. Predicted to colocalize with the cortical actin cytoskeleton. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including blepharocheilodontic syndrome 1; breast cancer (multiple); carcinoma (multiple); cervix uteri carcinoma in situ; and reproductive organ cancer (multiple). Orthologous to human CDH1 (cadherin 1).
