Previous Symbols for CADM3 Gene
IGSF4B is a brain-specific protein related to the calcium-independent cell-cell adhesion molecules known as nectins (see PVRL3; MIM 607147) (Kakunaga et al., 2005 [PubMed 15741237]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CADM3 Gene
CADM3 (Cell Adhesion Molecule 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cell junction organization and Cell junction organization. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity. An important paralog of this gene is CRTAM.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CADM3 Gene
Involved in the cell-cell adhesion. Has both calcium-independent homophilic cell-cell adhesion activity and calcium-independent heterophilic cell-cell adhesion activity with IGSF4, PVRL1 and PVRL3. Interaction with EPB41L1 may regulate structure or function of cell-cell junctions (By similarity).
