Gene: BCAM (basal cell adhesion molecule (Lutheran blood group)) Homo sapiens
Symbol: BCAM
Name: basal cell adhesion molecule (Lutheran blood group)
RGD ID: 68545
Description: Exhibits laminin binding activity; laminin receptor activity; and protein C-terminus binding activity. Involved in cell-matrix adhesion. Localizes to collagen-containing extracellular matrix and extracellular exosome.
