Summaries for CDH13 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CDH13 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the cadherin superfamily. The encoded protein is localized to the surface of the cell membrane and is anchored by a GPI moiety, rather than by a transmembrane domain. The protein lacks the cytoplasmic domain characteristic of other cadherins, and so is not thought to be a cell-cell adhesion glycoprotein. This protein acts as a negative regulator of axon growth during neural differentiation. It also protects vascular endothelial cells from apoptosis due to oxidative stress, and is associated with resistance to atherosclerosis. The gene is hypermethylated in many types of cancer. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, May 2011]

GeneCards Summary for CDH13 Gene

CDH13 (Cadherin 13) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDH13 include atherosclerosis. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and cadherin binding. An important paralog of this gene is DSG2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CDH13 Gene

  • Cadherins are calcium-dependent cell adhesion proteins. They preferentially interact with themselves in a homophilic manner in connecting cells; cadherins may thus contribute to the sorting of heterogeneous cell types. May act as a negative regulator of neural cell growth.

    Quaternary structure:
    • By contrast to classical cadherins, homodimerization in trans is not mediated by cadherin EC1 domain strand-swapping, but instead through a homophilic adhesive interface which joins two elongated EC1-EC2 domains through a region near their Ca2+-binding sites to form a tetrahedral, X-like shape.
