Gene: CDH12 (cadherin 12) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CDH12
Name: cadherin 12
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including cadherin binding activity; calcium ion binding activity; and protein homodimerization 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 homophilic cell adhesion via plasma membrane adhesion molecules. Predicted to localize to the catenin complex; cell surface; and cell-cell adherens junction.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
