Gene: CDH1 (cadherin 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CDH1
Name: cadherin 1
Description: This gene encodes a classical cadherin of the cadherin superfamily. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants, at least one of which encodes a preproprotein that is proteolytically processed to generate the mature glycoprotein. This calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion protein is comprised of five extracellular cadherin repeats, a transmembrane region and a highly conserved cytoplasmic tail. Mutations in this gene are correlated with gastric, breast, colorectal, thyroid and ovarian cancer. Loss of function of this gene is thought to contribute to cancer progression by increasing proliferation, invasion, and/or metastasis. The ectodomain of this protein mediates bacterial adhesion to mammalian cells and the cytoplasmic domain is required for internalization. This gene is present in a gene cluster with other members of the cadherin family on chromosome 16. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]

NCBI Annotation Information: Note: CDH1 (GeneID 999) and FZR1 (GeneID 51343) share the CDH1 symbol. CDH1 is sometimes used as an abbreviation for 'CDC20 homolog 1' which is an alternate name for the FZR1 gene and thus can be confused with the official symbol for cadherin 1 (CDH1). [16 Jul 2018]
