M-cadherin, a calcium-dependent intercellular adhesion molecule, is expressed in skeletal muscle cells. Its pattern of expression, both in vivo and in cell culture as well as functional studies, have implied that M-cadherin is important for skeletal muscle development, in particular the fusion of myoblasts into myotubes. M-cadherin formed complexes with the… CONTINUE READING
