Cdo is a multifunctional cell surface co-receptor that promotes Hedgehog signaling during rostroventral midline development and cadherin-mediated signaling during skeletal myogenesis. We report here novel roles for Cdo in patterning of the murine esophageal musculature and esophageal motility disorders such as achalasia.
