Summaries for ADAM8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ADAM8 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 protein encoded by this gene may be involved in cell adhesion during neurodegeneration, and it is thought to be a target for allergic respiratory diseases, including asthma. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2009]

GeneCards Summary for ADAM8 Gene

ADAM8 (ADAM Metallopeptidase Domain 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ADAM8 include asthma. Among its related pathways are Degradation of the extracellular matrix and Notch Signaling Pathway (sino). GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and metallopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADAM33.
