    ..Cadherins may also contribute to neurite outgrowth and pathfinding, and to synaptic specificity and modulation in the central nervous system. ..

    ..We propose that STIM1, a ubiquitously expressed protein that is conserved from Drosophila to mammalian cells, plays an essential role in SOC influx and may be a common component of SOC and CRAC channels. ..

    ..We conclude from this analysis that cadherins are likely to play a role in 'generic' neural functions, such as neurite fasciculation, branching, and synapse formation. ..

    ..Thus, calsyntenin-1 may link extracellular proteolysis in the synaptic cleft and postsynaptic Ca2+ signaling. ..
