Summaries for AAMP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for AAMP Gene

  • The gene is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. The encoded protein is associated with angiogenesis, with potential roles in endothelial tube formation and the migration of endothelial cells. It may also regulate smooth muscle cell migration via the RhoA pathway. The encoded protein can bind to heparin and may mediate heparin-sensitive cell adhesion. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2014]

GeneCards Summary for AAMP Gene

AAMP (Angio Associated Migratory Cell Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Nucleotide-binding domain, leucine rich repeat containing receptor (NLR) signaling pathways. GO annotations related to this gene include heparin binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AAMP Gene

  • Plays a role in angiogenesis and cell migration. In smooth muscle cell migration, may act through the RhoA pathway.
