Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have cadherin binding activity and calcium ion binding activity. Involved in corticospinal tract morphogenesis and modulation of chemical synaptic transmission. Localizes to several cellular components, including Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; glutamatergic synapse; and plasma membrane. 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).
