Entrez Gene Summary for CDH19 Gene

  • This gene is one of three related type II cadherin genes situated in a cluster on chromosome 18. The encoded protein is a calcium dependent cell-cell adhesion glycoprotein containing five extracellular cadherin repeats. Loss of cadherins may be associated with cancer formation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2012]

GeneCards Summary for CDH19 Gene

CDH19 (Cadherin 19, Type 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDH19 include van maldergem syndrome 1. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding. An important paralog of this gene is CDH5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CDH19 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
