CDH18 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. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
