The Nectin family of Ca2+-independent cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) is comprised of four members, nectin-1, nectin-2, nectin-3, and nectin-4 (reviewed in Sakisaka et al., 2007). Each nectin first forms homophilic cis-dimers and then forms homophilic or heterophilic trans-dimers involved in cell–cell adhesion. Heterophilic trans-interactions are stronger than homophilic trans-interactions.
