Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ADAMTS20 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the ADAMTS family of zinc-dependent proteases. The encoded protein has a signal peptide that is cleaved to release the mature peptide, which is secreted and found in the extracellular matrix. This protein may be involved in tissue remodeling.

GeneCards Summary for ADAMTS20 Gene
ADAMTS20 (ADAM Metallopeptidase With Thrombospondin Type 1 Motif 20) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are O-linked glycosylation and Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification. GO annotations related to this gene include metalloendopeptidase activity and endopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADAMTS17.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ADAMTS20 Gene
May play a role in tissue-remodeling process occurring in both normal and pathological conditions. May have a protease-independent function in the transport from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi apparatus of secretory cargos, mediated by the GON domain.
