Summaries for ADAM21 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ADAM21 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 expression of this gene expression is testis-specific. [provided by RefSeq, May 2011]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:

ADA21_HUMAN :
  • A tripeptide motif (VGE) within disintegrin-like domain could be involved in the binding to egg integrin receptor and thus could mediate sperm/egg binding.
Domain:
  • A tripeptide motif (VGE) within disintegrin-like domain could be involved in the binding to egg integrin receptor and thus could mediate sperm/egg binding.
  • The cysteine-rich domain encodes putative cell-fusion peptides, which could be involved in sperm-egg fusion.
  • The conserved cysteine present in the cysteine-switch motif binds the catalytic zinc ion, thus inhibiting the enzyme. The dissociation of the cysteine from the zinc ion upon the activation-peptide release activates the enzyme.
  • Contains 1 disintegrin domain.
  • Contains 1 EGF-like domain.
  • Contains 1 peptidase M12B domain.
