Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ADAMTS14 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the ADAMTS (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motif) protein family. Members of the family 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 encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate the mature enzyme. This enzyme cleaves amino-terminal propeptides from type I procollagen, a necessary step in the formation of collagen fibers. Mutations in this gene may be associated with osteoarthritis in human patients. [provided by RefSeq, May 2016]
GeneCards Summary for ADAMTS14 Gene
ADAMTS14 (ADAM Metallopeptidase With Thrombospondin Type 1 Motif 14) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Collagen chain trimerization and O-linked glycosylation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include peptidase activity and metalloendopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADAMTS3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ADAMTS14 Gene
Has a aminoprocollagen type I activity processing activity in the absence of ADAMTS2. Seems to be synthesized as a latent enzyme that requires activation to display aminoprocollagen peptidase activity.
