Gene: Pcdh15 (protocadherin 15) Mus musculus
Symbol: Pcdh15
Name: protocadherin 15
Description: Predicted to have protein N-terminus binding activity. Involved in several processes, including adult walking behavior; auditory receptor cell stereocilium organization; and detection of mechanical stimulus involved in sensory perception. Localizes to several cellular components, including the photoreceptor outer segment; plasma membrane; and stereocilium. Used to study Usher syndrome type 1F and autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 23. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Usher syndrome type 1D; Usher syndrome type 1F; and autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 23. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; gut epithelium; metanephros; sensory organ; and vibrissa follicle. Orthologous to human PCDH15 (protocadherin related 15); PARTICIPATES IN auditory mechanotransduction pathway; retinitis pigmentosa pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 2,3',4,4',5-Pentachlorobiphenyl; bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
