Background: N-Cadherin

N-Cadherin, also referred to as Neural Cadherin (NCAD) or Cadherin-2 (CHD2), is a 130 kDa protein that is a member of the calcium-dependent adhesion molecule family of classical (type I) cadherins (1-4). Under the CDH2 gene, human N-cadherin is synthesized as a 906 amino acid protein with a theoretical molecular weight of 99.8 kDa (5). The N-cadherin protein structure is similar to other classical type I cadherins including epithelial (E-) cadherin and placental (P-) cadherin (1,2). N-cadherin consists of a 25 amino acid (aa) N-terminal signal peptide and 134 aa pro-peptide, a 565 aa extracellular domain (ECD) with five cadherin repeats, a 21 aa transmembrane segment, and a 161 aa cytoplasmic domain (1-3,5). The ECD of N-cadherin monomers is responsible for homotypic binding through either cis or trans adhesion (2,3).

N-cadherin is expressed on multiple cell types but is most highly expressed by mesenchymal cells and neural tissue (2). Functionally, N-cadherin has a number of roles including maintaining structural integrity and adhesion, cell signaling, and formation of neuronal synapses and the vascular wall (2). The cytoplasmic tail interacts with beta-catenin which then binds with alpha-catenin, forming the cadherin-catenin adhesion complex, an important component of adhesions junctions (1-3). Given its role in adhesion, N-cadherin serves as an indicator of epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) (1-4). The loss of E-cadherin during EMT corresponds with an increase in N-cadherin expression (1-4). This "cadherin-switch" is associated with increased migratory and invasive behavior observed in tumor progress (1-4). Proteases including activity of a disintegrin and metalloprotease 10 (ADAM10), matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), caspase 3, presenilin, and calpain can cleave N-cadherin as a mechanism for regulating Wnt/beta-catenin signaling and inducing oncogenic signals (3,4). In addition to its expression in solid tumors, N-cadherin has been indicated in hematological disorders such as leukemia and multiple myeloma (1). N-cadherin antagonists are currently being studied as potential therapeutics for a variety of cancer studies (1-2).
