Definitions of P Cadherin

  1. A group of functionally related glycoproteins responsible for the calcium- dependent cell- to- cell adhesion mechanism. They are divided into subclasses E-, P-, and N- cadherins, which are distinct in immunological specificity and tissue distribution. They promote cell adhesion via a homophilic mechanism. These compounds play a role in the construction of tissues and of the whole animal body.
