Summaries for CDON Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CDON Gene

  • This gene encodes a cell surface receptor that is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. The encoded protein contains three fibronectin type III domains and five immunoglobulin-like C2-type domains. This protein is a member of a cell-surface receptor complex that mediates cell-cell interactions between muscle precursor cells and positively regulates myogenesis. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]

GeneCards Summary for CDON Gene

CDON (Cell Adhesion Associated, Oncogene Regulated) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDON include holoprosencephaly 11 and cdon-related holoprosencephaly. Among its related pathways are L1CAM interactions and Signaling events mediated by the Hedgehog family. An important paralog of this gene is BOC.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CDON Gene

  • Component of a cell-surface receptor complex that mediates cell-cell interactions between muscle precursor cells. Promotes differentiation of myogenic cells (By similarity).
