Predicted to enable protein homodimerization activity. Predicted to be involved in cell-cell adhesion; negative regulation of cornification; and skin development. Predicted to be located in desmosome. Is expressed in back skin and epidermis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in alopecia; hypotrichosis 2; and peeling skin syndrome. Orthologous to human CDSN (corneodesmosin). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
