Domain

Cadherin, cytoplasmic C-terminal domain (IPR032455)

Short name: Cadherin_C

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents the cytoplasmic C-terminal domain of some proto-cadherins. It is this region of the cadherins that allows cell-adhesion and the essential feature of metazoan multicellularity. Cadherins are cell-surface receptors that function in cell adhesion, cell polarity, and tissue morphogenesis [PMID: 1568244, PMID: 22837400].
