  Domain Name: Ig7_DSCAM
Seventh immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain of Down Syndrome Cell Adhesion molecule (DSCAM). Ig7_DSCAM: the seventh immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain of Down Syndrome Cell Adhesion molecule (DSCAM). DSCAM is a cell adhesion molecule expressed largely in the developing nervous system. The gene encoding DSCAM is located at human chromosome 21q22, the locus associated with the mental retardation phenotype of Down Syndrome. DSCAM is predicted to be the largest member of the IG superfamily. It has been demonstrated that DSCAM can mediate cation-independent homophilic intercellular adhesion.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
