Schematic drawing of the topology of the first N terminal cadherin repeat. bA, bB, bE, and bD form a beta sheet and are shown in green; bC, bF, and bG form another beta sheet and are shown in yellow; the alpha helices are shown in magenta. Red type indicates involvement in adhesion; blue type, calcium binding. The putative homophilic specificity and calcium binding pocket are enclosed in dotted lines.
