Protocadherin-1 (PCDH-1; also PC42) is a 150-155 kDa δ1 subgroup member of the nonclustered protocadherin family of molecules. It is expressed on macrophages, respiratory epithelium, endothelial cells and neurons. Protocadherin-1 apparently forms homophilic Ca++-dependent complexes and likely serves as an adhesion molecule. Human full-length Protocadherin-1 precursor is 1237 amino acids (aa) in length. It is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein that contains a 795 aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 58-852) plus a 187 aa cytoplasmic region. There are seven cadherin domains in the ECD (aa 58-844), and an RRVTF cytoplasmic motif that binds PP1 alpha phosphatase. There is one splice variant that contains a 204 aa substitution for aa 1034-1060 in the cytoplasmic domain. An alternative start site may exist at Met23. Over aa 58-162, human Protocadherin-1 shares 96% aa identity with mouse Protocadherin-1.
