Entrez Gene Summary for CDH10 Gene

  • This gene encodes a type II classical cadherin of the cadherin superfamily. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. At least one of these variants encodes a preproprotein that is proteolytically processed to generate the mature cadherin protein. These integral membrane proteins mediate calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion and are composed of a large N-terminal extracellular domain, a single membrane-spanning domain, and a small, highly conserved C-terminal cytoplasmic domain. The extracellular domain consists of 5 subdomains, each containing a cadherin motif, and appears to determine the specificity of the protein's homophilic cell adhesion activity. Type II (atypical) cadherins are defined based on their lack of a histidine-alanine-valine (HAV) cell adhesion recognition sequence specific to type I cadherins. This particular cadherin is predominantly expressed in brain and is putatively involved in synaptic adhesions, axon outgrowth and guidance. Mutations in this gene may be associated with lung squamous cell carcinoma and colorectal cancer in human patients. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]

GeneCards Summary for CDH10 Gene

CDH10 (Cadherin 10) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CDH10 include Lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Among its related pathways are ERK Signaling and Presenilin-Mediated Signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding. An important paralog of this gene is CDH6.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CDH10 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.
