cadherin

<protein> Integral membrane proteins involved in calcium dependent cell adhesion. There are three types, named after their distributions: N cadherin (neural), E cadherin (epithelial) (equivalent to uvomorulin and L CAM) and P cadherin placental). Formed of a 600 amino acid extracellular domain, containing 4 repeats believed to contain the Ca ...

Cadherin

Cadherins (named for `calcium-dependent adhesion`) are a class of type-1 transmembrane proteins. They play important roles in cell adhesion, forming adherens junctions to bind cells within tissues together. They are dependent on calcium (Ca2+) ions to function, hence their name. The cadherin superfamily includes cadherins, protocadherins, desmog.....
