Aliases for ADAM10 Gene
External Ids for ADAM10 Gene
Members of the ADAM family are cell surface proteins with a unique structure possessing both potential adhesion and protease domains. This gene encodes and ADAM family member that cleaves many proteins including TNF-alpha and E-cadherin. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ADAM10 Gene
ADAM10 (ADAM Metallopeptidase Domain 10) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ADAM10 include reticulate acropigmentation of kitamura and alzheimer disease 18. Among its related pathways are Signaling by FGFR and Signaling by FGFR. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is ADAM17.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ADAM10 Gene
Cleaves the membrane-bound precursor of TNF-alpha at 76-Ala- -Val-77 to its mature soluble form. Responsible for the proteolytical release of soluble JAM3 from endothelial cells surface. Responsible for the proteolytic release of several other cell-surface proteins, including heparin-binding epidermal growth-like factor, ephrin-A2 and for constitutive and regulated alpha-secretase cleavage of amyloid precursor protein (APP). Contributes to the normal cleavage of the cellular prion protein. Involved in the cleavage of the adhesion molecule L1 at the cell surface and in released membrane vesicles, suggesting a vesicle-based protease activity. Controls also the proteolytic processing of Notch and mediates lateral inhibition during neurogenesis. Responsible for the FasL ectodomain shedding and for the generation of the remnant ADAM10-processed FasL (FasL APL) transmembrane form. Also cleaves the ectodomain of the integral membrane proteins CORIN and ITM2B. May regulate the EFNA5-EPHA3 signaling.
