Protocadherin alpha-1 is 1 of 15 tandemLy arranged genes within the PCDHA gene cluster. These 15 genes function as 'variable' exons that are individually spliced to a downstream constant region to form distinct PCDHA transcripts. They encode cadherin-like cell surface proteins that are expressed in neurons and are present at synaptic junctions.
