FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene is the second identified human homolog of the Drosophila fat gene, which encodes a tumor suppressor essential for controlling cell proliferation during Drosophila development. The gene product is a member of the cadherin superfamily, a group of integral membrane proteins characterized by the presence of cadherin-type repeats. In addition to containing 34 tandem cadherin-type repeats, the gene product has two epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like repeats and one laminin G domain. This protein most likely functions as a cell adhesion molecule, controlling cell proliferation and playing an important role in cerebellum development. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele are healthy, fertile and overtly normal, with no apparent defects in the development of red blood cells or platelets. [provided by MGI curators]
