External Ids for ADAMTS17 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the ADAMTS (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs) protein family. ADAMTS family members share several distinct protein modules, including a propeptide region, a metalloproteinase domain, a disintegrin-like domain, and a thrombospondin type 1 (TS) motif. Individual members of this family differ in the number of C-terminal TS motifs, and some have unique C-terminal domains. The protein encoded by this gene has a high sequence similarity to the protein encoded by ADAMTS19, another family member. The function of this protein has not been determined.

GeneCards Summary for ADAMTS17 Gene
ADAMTS17 (ADAM Metallopeptidase With Thrombospondin Type 1 Motif, 17) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ADAMTS17 include weill-marchesani-like syndrome and ichthyosis-short stature-brachydactyly-microspherophakia syndrome. GO annotations related to this gene include metalloendopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADAMTS16.
