Gene Symbol CDH2
Gene Full Name cadherin 2, type 1, N-cadherin (neuronal)
Background This gene is a classical cadherin from the cadherin superfamily. The encoded protein is a calcium dependent cell-cell adhesion glycoprotein comprised of five extracellular cadherin repeats, a transmembrane region and a highly conserved cytoplasmic tail. The protein functions during gastrulation and is required for establishment of left-right asymmetry. At certain central nervous system synapses, presynaptic to postsynaptic adhesion is mediated at least in part by this gene product. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Function 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. Acts as a regulator of neural stem cells quiescence by mediating anchorage of neural stem cells to ependymocytes in the adult subependymal zone: upon cleavage by MMP24, CDH2-mediated anchorage is affected, leading to modulate neural stem cell quiescence. CDH2 may be involved in neuronal recognition mechanism. In hippocampal neurons, may regulate dendritic spine density (By similarity). [UniProt]
Cellular Localization Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein
Cell membrane; sarcolemma
Cell junction
Cell surface
Note: Colocalizes with TMEM65 at the intercalated disk in cardiomyocytes. Colocalizes with OBSCN at the intercalated disk and at sarcolemma in cardiomyocytes. [UniProt]
PTM Cleaved by MMP24. Ectodomain cleavage leads to the generation of a soluble 90 kDa amino-terminal soluble fragment and a 45 kDa membrane-bound carboxy-terminal fragment 1 (CTF1), which is further cleaved by gamma-secretase into a 35 kDa. Cleavage in neural stem cells by MMP24 affects CDH2-mediated anchorage of neural stem cells to ependymocytes in the adult subependymal zone, leading to modulate neural stem cell quiescence (By similarity).

May be phosphorylated by OBSCN. [UniProt]
