Entrez Gene Summary for CDH26 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the cadherin protein family. Cadherins are a family of calcium-dependent adhesion molecules that mediate cell-cell adhesion in all solid tissues and modulate a wide variety of processes, including cell polarization, migration and differentiation. Cadherin domains occur as repeats in the extracellular region and are thought to contribute to the sorting of heterogeneous cell types and the maintenance of orderly structures such as epithelium. This protein is expressed in gastrointestinal epithelial cells and may be upregulated during allergic inflammation. This protein interacts with alpha integrins and may also be involved in leukocyte migration and adhesion. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2017]

GeneCards Summary for CDH26 Gene

CDH26 (Cadherin 26) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are WNT Signaling and Nanog in Mammalian ESC Pluripotency. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding. An important paralog of this gene is CDH2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CDH26 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. Ligand for integrins alpha-E/beta-7, ITGAE:ITGAB7, alpha-4/beta-7, ITGA4:ITGAB7 and alpha-4/beta-1, ITGA4:ITGAB1 through which modulates CD4(+) T cells activation (PubMed:28051089).
