Gene: Cdh8 (cadherin 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cdh8
Name: cadherin 8
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including cadherin binding activity; cytoskeletal protein 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 morphogenesis; and cell-cell adhesion mediated by cadherin. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the catenin complex; glutamatergic synapse; and synaptic cleft. Orthologous to human CDH8 (cadherin 8); INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; ammonium chloride; bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
