Three types of full-length cDNAs encoding chicken cadherin-8 (Cdh8) were identified and their expression in the embryonic chicken brain was investigated. The longest type of cDNA is closely similar to that of other classic cadherins, and the predicted protein shows a high similarity to rat and human Cdh8. The second type of cDNA is considerably shorter. The deduced protein lacks the cytoplasmic tail and the transmembrane domain, and contains a truncated fifth cadherin repeat in the… CONTINUE READING
