• Official Full Name
  • cadherin 20, type 2
  • Background
  • This gene is a type II classical cadherin from the cadherin superfamily and one of three cadherin 7-like genes located in a cluster on chromosome 18. 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. Since disturbance of intracellular adhesion is a prerequisite for invasion and metastasis of tumor cells, cadherins are considered prime candidates for tumor suppressor genes.

Protein Function

CDH20 has several biochemical functions, for example, calcium ion binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by CDH20 itself. We selected most functions CDH20 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with CDH20. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
