Cadherins are transmembrane proteins, with five heavily glycosylated external domains. They are being the primary cause for strong general intercellular adhesion, and they are also being the components of some specialized adhesive contacts, and are attached by linker proteins  at their cytoplasmic ends to the underlying cytoskeletal fibres . Different cell types possess different members of the cadherin family, e.g.  E-cadherins in epithelia, P-cadherins in the placenta, and N-cadherins in nervous tissue.
