Gene: CDH15 (cadherin 15) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CDH15
Name: cadherin 15
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. Localizes to the Golgi apparatus and plasma membrane. Implicated in autosomal dominant non-syndromic intellectual disability 3.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
