Previous GeneCards Identifiers for AMZ2 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a zinc metalloprotease that displays some activity against angiotensin-3. The encoded protein is inhibited by the aminopeptidase inhibitor amastatin, as well as by the general inhibitors o-phenanthroline and batimastat. Defects in this gene may be associated with lung tumorigenesis. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2016]
