play distinctive roles in retinal regeneration.

and cancer: how does cadherin
dysfunction promote tumor progression?
CDH17 is a unique member of the cadherin
superfamily regulating intercellular adhesion.
Convergence of Wnt, [beta]-catenin, and cadherin
The observation that cadherins
play an important role in the establishment of the epithelial phenotype, cell migration, cell differentiation, and tumor dissemination has stimulated great interest in this family of adhesion molecules.
are transmembrane proteins responsible for cell adhesion.
Testing for cadherins
might be one of those methods.
