Cadherin 1 to cadherin 4 domains mediate homophilic trans-interaction, the interaction with an identical protocadherin expressed by a neighboring cell. This is a head-to-tail interaction, the cadherin 1 domain interacting with the cadherin 4 domain and the cadherin 2 domain interacting the cadherin 3 domain of the other protocadherin. The cadherin 6 domain mediates promiscuous interactions with protocadherins on the same cell membrane. Each cadherin domain binds three calcium ions.By similarity

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence.
