  • Function
    Cadherins are calcium-dependent cell adhesion proteins. They preferentially interact with themselves in a homophilic manner in connecting cells; cadherins may thus contribute to the sorting of heterogeneous cell types. M-cadherin is part of the myogenic program and may provide a trigger for terminal muscle differentiation.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in the brain and cerebellum.
  • Involvement in disease
    A chromosomal aberration involving CDH15 and KIRREL3 is found in a patient with severe mental retardation and dysmorphic facial features. Translocation t(11;16)(q24.2;q24).
    Mental retardation, autosomal dominant 3
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 5 cadherin domains.
  • Domain
    Three calcium ions are usually bound at the interface of each cadherin domain and rigidify the connections, imparting a strong curvature to the full-length ectodomain.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane.
