Gene: CDH2 (cadherin 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CDH2
Name: cadherin 2
Description: Exhibits alpha-catenin binding activity; beta-catenin binding activity; and gamma-catenin binding 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 nervous system development. Localizes to several cellular components, including adherens junction; catenin complex; and lamellipodium. Colocalizes with cortical actin cytoskeleton. Implicated in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
