Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.4.0)
Predicted to enable 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 act upstream of or within cell adhesion. Predicted to be located in plasma membrane. Predicted to be part of catenin complex. Predicted to be active in adherens junction. Is expressed in several structures, including appendicular skeleton; bladder; brain; gut; and retina. Orthologous to human CDH12 (cadherin 12).
