Technical Data
Cadherin 11 (OB-Cadherin, Osteoblast, CDH11)
Cadherins are a large family of Ca(2+)-dependent cell-cell adhesion molecules. Classical cadherins contain ve EC domains and a conserved cytoplasmic domain. Based on amino acid alignment, classical cadherins are divided into type I and II subgroups. Type I cadherins, including cadherins E (epithelial), N (neural), P (placental), and R (retinal) differ from type I cadherins in their speci c amino acid sequences. Type II cadherins include human cadherin-5, -6, -8, -11, and -12. Cadherin 11 (OB-Cadherin) is a marker of the loosely connected and migratory cellular elements of the mesenchyme and a strong expression has been noted in brain, spinal cord, bone marrow and bone cells, and is regulated in human endometrial glandular epithelial and stromal cells. A variant Cadherin 11 gene (variant form) encodes a truncated protein with an unusual cytoplasmic domain not present in other cadherins. The variant protein is generated by alternative splicing, utilizing a 179 bp intronic sequence. Recently, Cadherin 11 mRNA and protein were found to be expressed in most invasive breast cancer cell lines tested, but not in non-invasive cell lines, suggesting that cadherin-11 may be a marker for aggressive, invasive tumor subsets.
