CD144, also known as vascular endothelial-cadherin (VE-cadherin), is a 120 kD member of the type II Cadherin family.  It is an endothelial specific hemophilic adhesion molecule involved in endothelial cell survival, migration, contact-dependent growth inhibition and homophilic adhesion.  VE-cadherin is essential for maintaining the integrity of the endothelial barrier in vivo.

Other Names: Vascular endothelial-cadherin, VE-cadherin
Structure: A 120 kD member of type II Cadherin family
Distribution: Endothelial cells
Function: Involved in endothelial cell survival, migration, contact-dependent growth inhibition, and hemophilic adhesion.
