Literature associating CDH4 and maturity-onset diabetes of the young type 5
Cadherin 4, type 1, R-cadherin (retinal); 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. May play an important role in retinal development.
