Cadherin-6 分子背景

Cadherin-6 (CDH6) is also known as Kidney cadherin (K-cadherin or KCAD), is a a type II classical cadherin from the cadherin superfamily. 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. CDH6 / KCAD contains five cadherin domains. CDH6 is highly expressed in brain, cerebellum, and kidney. Lung, pancreas, and gastric mucosa show a weak expression and also expressed in certain liver and kidney carcinomas.
