Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Predicted to enable cadherin binding activity and calcium ion binding activity. Involved in modulation of chemical synaptic transmission. Acts upstream of or within corticospinal tract morphogenesis. Located in cytoplasm and plasma membrane. Is active in Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse and glutamatergic synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Elsahy-Waters syndrome. Orthologous to human CDH11 (cadherin 11).
