The protocadherin family comprises clustered and nonclustered protocadherin genes. The nonclustered genes encode mainly δ-protocadherins, which deviate markedly from classical cadherins. They can be subdivided phylogenetically into δ0-protocadherins (protocadherin-20), δ1-protocadherins (protocadherin-1, -7, -9, and -11X/Y), and δ2-protocadherins (protocadherin-8, -10, -17, -18, and -19). δ-Protocadherins share a similar gene structure and are expressed as multiple alternative splice forms… CONTINUE READING
