Summaries for ADAM9 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ADAM9 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 interacts with SH3 domain-containing proteins, binds mitotic arrest deficient 2 beta protein, and is also involved in TPA-induced ectodomain shedding of membrane-anchored heparin-binding EGF-like growth factor. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants have been identified for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010]

GeneCards Summary for ADAM9 Gene

ADAM9 (ADAM Metallopeptidase Domain 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ADAM9 include Cone-Rod Dystrophy 9 and Retinitis Pigmentosa. Among its related pathways are A-beta Signaling Pathways and Adhesion. GO annotations related to this gene include SH3 domain binding and integrin binding. An important paralog of this gene is ADAM12.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ADAM9 Gene

  • Cleaves and releases a number of molecules with important roles in tumorigenesis and angiogenesis, such as TEK, KDR, EPHB4, CD40, VCAM1 and CDH5. May mediate cell-cell, cell-matrix interactions and regulate the motility of cells via interactions with integrins.

  • Isoform 2: May act as alpha-secretase for amyloid precursor protein (APP).

Post-translational modifications for ADAM9 Gene

  • Phosphorylation is induced in vitro by phorbol-12-myristate-13-acetate (PMA).
  • Proteolytically cleaved in the trans-Golgi network before it reaches the plasma membrane to generate a mature protein. The removal of the pro-domain occurs via cleavage at two different sites. Processed most likely by a pro-protein convertase such as furin, at the boundary between the pro-domain and the catalytic domain. An additional upstream cleavage pro-protein convertase site (Arg-56/Glu-57) has an important role in the activation of ADAM9.
  • Glycosylation at Asn 125, Asn 144, Asn 154, Asn 231, Asn 381, and Asn 487

  • Cone-rod dystrophy 9 (CORD9) [MIM:612775]: An inherited retinal dystrophy characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination, predominantly in the macular region, and initial loss of cone photoreceptors followed by rod degeneration. This leads to decreased visual acuity and sensitivity in the central visual field, followed by loss of peripheral vision. Severe loss of vision occurs earlier than in retinitis pigmentosa. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19409519}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
