A unique role of E-cadherin among the cadherin family members co-expressed in the neural crest?

Huang, Chaolie

In the present work, quantitative analysis of six different cadherin superfamily members provides a novel cadherin expression profile in Xenopus cranial neural crest (CNC) cells. Interestingly, E-cadherin, together with XB/C-cadherins and PAPC are identified for the first time in CNC cells. Furthermore, knockdown analysis of E-cadherin allocates a novel function of this cadherin in mediating CNC migration.
