Publication date: April 2018 Source:Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - Reviews on Cancer, Volume 1869, Issue 2 Author(s): J. Ignacio Casal, Rubén A. Bartolomé We propose a new cadherin family classification comprising epithelial cadherins (cadherin 17 [CDH17], cadherin 16, VE-cadherin, cadherin 6 and cadherin 20) containing RGD motifs within their sequences. Expression of some RGD cadherins is associated with aggressive forms of cancer during the late stages of metastasis, and CDH17 and VE-cadherin have emerged as critical actors in cancer metastasis. After binding to α2β1 integrin, these cadhe...
