Entrez Gene Summary for CDH7 Gene

  • This gene is a type II classical cadherin from the cadherin superfamily. The encoded membrane protein is a calcium dependent cell-cell adhesion glycoprotein comprised of five extracellular cadherin repeats, a transmembrane region and a highly conserved cytoplasmic tail. Type II (atypical) cadherins are defined based on their lack of a HAV cell adhesion recognition sequence specific to type I cadherins. Cadherins mediate cell-cell binding in a homophilic manner, contributing to the sorting of heterogeneous cell types and the maintenance of orderly structures. Alternative splicing in the 5' UTR of this gene yields variant transcripts encoding the same protein. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CDH7 Gene

CDH7 (Cadherin 7, Type 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDH7 include charge syndrome. 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 CDH19.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CDH7 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
