Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits adiponectin binding activity and protein homodimerization activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including Ras protein signal transduction; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to the external side of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in breast cancer (multiple); lung non-small cell carcinoma; reproductive organ cancer (multiple); and urinary bladder cancer. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; appendicular skeleton; cardiovascular system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human CDH13 (cadherin 13).
