FUNCTION: This gene encodes a member of the cadherin family of calcium-dependent glycoproteins that mediate cell adhesion and regulate many morphogenetic events during development. The encoded preproprotein is further processed to generate a mature protein. Based on the expression of this gene in skeletal muscle, satellite cells and cerebellum, it was postulated that the encoded protein may be important for muscle development and regeneration. Mice lacking the encoded protein appear normal and display no discernible defects in skeletal musculature. Multiple distinct genes of the cadherin family, including this gene, are found on chromosome 8. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mice are viable, fertile, and show no apparent defects in the development, maintenance, or regeneration of skeletal muscle or in the cerebellum. [provided by MGI curators]
