Description
Predicted to have cadherin binding activity and calcium ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; embryonic morphogenesis; and nervous system development. Localizes to catenin complex; perinuclear region of cytoplasm; and presynaptic membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including germ ring; immature eye; mesoderm; nervous system; and pericardial region. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. Orthologous to human CDH2 (cadherin 2).
