CDH3

A gene on chromosome 16q22.1 that encodes a calcium-dependent cell–cell adhesion glycoprotein (cadherin), which is involved in regulating cell–cell adhesions, mobility and proliferation of epithelial cells. CDH3 is also a retired HUGO symbol for what is now designated CDH15, see there.

Molecular pathology
Loss of heterozygosity mutations of CDH3 occur in breast and prostate cancer; aberrant expression of cadherin 3 occurs in cervical adenocarcinomas. CDH3 mutation causes congenital hypotrichosis with juvenile macular dystrophy and ectodermal dysplasia with ectrodactyly and macular dystrophy.

We conducted a case-control study of 560 patients with newly diagnosed angiographically documented PCAD and an equal number of control patients with normal coronary arteries (no luminal stenosis at coronary angiography; Gensini score = 0).
For the purpose of creating a "DNA-bank of patients with PCAD and controls" at THC, from June 2004 to July 2011, all male patients aged 45 years old or younger and all female patients 55 years old or younger were asked to provide a sample of whole blood for DNA extraction.

We identified only one instance in which the Fed extended credit to a bank that was identified as critically undercapitalized in the PCAD database.
PCAD, BOCA, and the Coalition saw action as an essential outcome of their research and organizing.
In the process of learning about the struggles of so many youth in the high school and hearing similar stories shared by family after family, many of the PCAD, BOCA, and Coalition members were moved from a position of "what is best for my child" to one of "what is best for our children.
Dyslipidemia had no significant impact on PCAD in the subset that combined white and Asian Indian patients, but dyslipidemia increased the odds of PCAD approximately threefold in the subset of black and Hispanic patients.
Dyslipidemia, diabetes, and smoking were among the strongest modifiable risk factors; obesity was not a significant independent risk factor for PCAD in this study.
The updated PCAD schematic and board translators enable OrCAD's customers with legacy PCAD designs to easily move them to OrCAD's NT enterprise solution software while maintaining their design investment.
Testing on our PCAD translators has shown that most translated boards require no additional work except to apply OrCAD Layout-specific properties to entities on the board.
Ray Humphrey, a veteran PCB designer and PCAD user with DynaCad Design Services, says, "PCAD is not the easiest CAD tool to learn how to use, but because of its power and flexibility, it has been the yardstick by which other DOS systems have been measured.
