GeneDescription Cdh6 helps in maintenance of orderly structure such as epithelium. Strong transcriptional expression of this gene has been observed in hepatocellular and renal carcinoma cell lines.
GeneFunction Kubota et al.(2007) used cdh6 antisense Morpholino oligonucleotide and in situ analysis they came to know about Cdh6 role in nephrogenesis. They have cloned Cdh6 homolog which shows 60-63 % identity and 76-78% similarity to human, mouse, chicken and xenopus. In situ analysis showed Cdh6 expression in pronephric ducts and nephron primorida at 14 hpf, which increases at 24 hpf. On injecting Cdh6 MOs they found some defects in zebrafish embryos ie short yolk extension and short bent tail, small head by 30hpf. Some defect becomes prominent with time but embyo died on 5 day post fertilization. Histological studies showed abnormally fused glomerulus primordial, abnormally bent pronephric tubule anlagen etc. In summary, Cdh6 is proves to play important role in pronephrons in zebrafish embryos. Liu Q et al.(2008) usedCdh6 antisense morphino oligonucleotides and analysed differentiation of retinal ganglion cells, amacrine cells. They analysed Cdh6 knockdown embyos using multiple markers and found that factors important for retinal development was greatly reduced expression of Notch- Delta genes and proneural gene ath5 . In summary, they found that differentiation of retinal ganglion cells, amacrine cells and photoreceptors was disrupted in Cdh6 morphant. This suggested cdh6 role in normal formation of zebrafish retina.

GeneStructure Cdh6 encodes for two transcripts. ENSDART00000013638) consists of 12 exons and is 3,242 bps in length. The protein product (ENSDARP00000025811) consist of 794 residues.

DisordersAndMutations Kubota et al., 2007 They have purchased the Fluorescein-labeled antisense Morpholino oligonucleotides (MOs) from Gene Tools (Philomath, OR, USA). These MOs were designed complementary to the 5 sequence near the translational initiation site of cdh6 (cdh6MOs) with the sequences: cdh6MO-1, 5- AAGAAGTACAATCCAAGTCCTCATC-3 (targets 5 sequence spanning the start codon, italicized); and cdh6MO-2,5-ATCCTATCTGCCAAAGTTACAGAGC-3 (directed against the sequence 5 of the UTR to the start codon).
