(redirected from cadherin-10)

CDH10

A gene on chromosome 5p14.2 that encodes a calcium-dependent cell–cell adhesion glycoprotein (cadherin), which is involved in regulating cell–cell adhesions, mobility and proliferation of epithelial cells. CDH10 is a so-called type-II (atypical) cadherin—which lacks a HAV cell adhesion recognition sequence specific to type-I cadherins—and is expressed in the brain and thought to be involved in synaptic adhesions, axon outgrowth and guidance.
