Cadherin 8

cadherin-8, Cad8, CDH8
This gene encodes a type II classical cadherin from the cadherin superfamily, integral membrane proteins that mediate calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion. Mature cadherin proteins 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 HAV cell adhesion recognition sequence specific to type I cadherins. This particular cadherin is expressed in brain and is putatively involved in synaptic adhesion, axon outgrowth and guidance. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

In this study we characterize the localization of adhesion and scaffolding proteins that are localized to the cone synapse, including alpha-n-catenin, beta-catenin, gamma-protocadherin, cadherin-8, MAGI2 and CASK.
Tbr1 haploinsufficiency impairs amygdalar axonal projections and results in cognitive abnormality.
