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. Mice lacking the encoded protein die in utero due to vascular insufficiency, caused by increased endothelial apoptosis. Multiple distinct genes of the cadherin family, including this gene, are found on chromosome 8. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2015]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous inactivation or cytosolic truncation of this gene causes embryonic growth retardation, abnormal somite and heart development, impaired remodeling and maturation of endothelial cells, increased endothelial apoptosis and severe vascular defects leading to embryonic death at midgestation.
