Cell adhesion molecule 4 (IPR028807)

Short name: Cadm4

Family relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents Cadm4, which belongs to a group of nectin-like cell adhesion molecules, Cadm1-4 (also known as NECL1-4). They are adhesion molecules that engage in homo- and heterophilic interactions with the other nectin-like family members, leading to cell aggregation [PMID: 15893517, PMID: 17967169, PMID: 16261159]. It has been shown that Cadm4 plays a role in the establishment of the myelin unit in the peripheral nervous system [PMID: 23825401].
