Claudin 4, also known as CLDN4, is a protein which in humans is encoded by the CLDN4 gene. It belongs to the group of claudins.

This gene encodes the composite membrane protein that belongs to the claudin family. Protein is a component of the hard strands of connection and may play a role in the internal development and organ function during pre - and postnatal life. This gene is deleted in Williams-Beuren syndrome, neurological disorders affecting several systems.
