Summaries for CDH15 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CDH15 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the cadherin superfamily of genes, encoding calcium-dependent intercellular adhesion glycoproteins. Cadherins consist of an extracellular domain containing 5 cadherin domains, a transmembrane region, and a conserved cytoplasmic domain. Transcripts from this particular cadherin are expressed in myoblasts and upregulated in myotubule-forming cells. The protein is thought to be essential for the control of morphogenetic processes, specifically myogenesis, and may provide a trigger for terminal muscle cell differentiation.

GeneCards Summary for CDH15 Gene

CDH15 (Cadherin 15) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDH15 include autosomal dominant non-syndromic intellectual disability and telogen effluvium. Among its related pathways are Developmental Biology and CDO in myogenesis. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding. An important paralog of this gene is DSG2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CDH15 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. M-cadherin is part of the myogenic program and may provide a trigger for terminal muscle differentiation.
