Related Product Information for
anti-CDH15 antibody
Cadherin-15 is a 124kD type I transmembrane glycoprotein of the Cadherin superfamily of calcium-dependent homotypic adhesion molecules. Like other classical Cadherins, the 814aa human Cadherin-15 contains a signal sequence (21aa), a propeptide (29aa), an extracellular domain with five Cadherin domain repeats (ECD, 556aa), a transmembrane segment (20aa) and a cytoplasmic domain (188aa). The Cadherin repeats are responsible for cell-cell adhesion by homophilic binding on opposing cells. Intracellularly, Cadherin-15 binds beta-catenin or plakoglobin (gamma-catenin), which in turn bind alpha-catenin. Cadherin-15 also binds p120 catenin. Cadherin-15 is present during early stages of skeletal muscle development and is thought to align myoblasts for fusion. It is also present in muscle satellite cells and participates in muscle regeneration. It is expressed in the granule cell layer of the cerebellar glomerulus. Deletion of mouse Cadherin-15 has little effect in vivo, most likely due to compensation by N-Cadherin. However, Cadherin-15 upregulation and adhesion between myoblasts during induction of differentiation in vitro is required for their fusion. Human Cadherin-15 ECD shows 88% aa identity with mouse, rat, or bovine and 85% aa identity with canine Cadherin-15 ECD. Cadherin-15 is an outlier among classical Cadherins, with 40% aa identity or less in the ECD.

NCBI Summary for CDH15
This gene is a member of the cadherin superfamily of genes, encoding calcium-dependent intercellular adhesion glycoproteins. Cadherins consist of an extracellular domain containing 5 cadherin domains, a transmembrane region, and a conserved cytoplasmic domain. Transcripts from this particular cadherin are expressed in myoblasts and upregulated in myotubule-forming cells. The protein is thought to be essential for the control of morphogenetic processes, specifically myogenesis, and may provide a trigger for terminal muscle cell differentiation. [provided by RefSeq]
UniProt Comments for CDH15
CDH15: Cadherins are calcium-dependent cell adhesion proteins. They preferentially interact with themselves in a homophilic manner in connecting cells; cadherins may thus contribute to the sorting of heterogeneous cell types. M-cadherin is part of the myogenic program and may provide a trigger for terminal muscle differentiation. A chromosomal aberration involving CDH15 and KIRREL3 is found in a patient with severe mental retardation and dysmorphic facial features. Translocation t(11;16)(q24.2;q24). Defects in CDH15 are the cause of mental retardation autosomal dominant type 3 (MRD3). Mental retardation is characterized by significantly sub-average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptative behavior and manifested during the developmental period.
