Here, we report the results of molecular cloning and expression analyses of a non-clustered protocadherin (pcdh), pcdh18 in zebrafish embryos. The predicted zebrafish pcdh18 protein shows 6566% identity and 7879% homology with its mammalian and Xenopus counterparts. It has a Disabled-1 binding motif in its cytoplasmic domain, which is characteristic of… CONTINUE READING
