Summaries for ADAM2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ADAM2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the ADAM (a disintegrin and metalloprotease domain) family. Members of this family are membrane-anchored proteins structurally related to snake venom disintegrins, and have been implicated in a variety of biological processes involving cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions, including fertilization, muscle development, and neurogenesis. The encoded protein is a subunit of an integral sperm membrane glycoprotein called fertilin, which plays an important role in sperm-egg interactions. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]

GeneCards Summary for ADAM2 Gene

ADAM2 (ADAM Metallopeptidase Domain 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Reproduction. GO annotations related to this gene include metalloendopeptidase activity and metallopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADAM18.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ADAM2 Gene

  • Sperm surface membrane protein that may be involved in sperm-egg plasma membrane adhesion and fusion during fertilization. Could have a direct role in sperm-zona binding or migration of sperm from the uterus into the oviduct. Interactions with egg membrane could be mediated via binding between its disintegrin-like domain to one or more integrins receptors on the egg. This is a non catalytic metalloprotease-like protein.
