Nectin 4 is a serum biomarker for cancer as it is highly expressed in cancer cell lines and tumor tissues but not in normal cells. In this study the Nectin-4 protein molecule of Homo sapiens was characterized in silico and its protein structure was predicted using commercial and available online tools. A 3D structure of Nectin-4 was created by homology modeling. Stereochemistry revealed that 99.5% of the residues of the model were in the most allowed regions. Nectin-4 bound to adaptor protein Afadin.
