The structure of the C-cadherin ectodomain resolved

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


In a recent issue of Science, Boggon et al. report the structure of the full-length C-cadherin ectodomain (CCAD1-5). Previous cell adhesion and direct force measurements demonstrated that the CCAD1-5 ectodomain is a functionally active adhesion molecule, and thus the determination of its structure is a significant achievement.
