Aliases:This biomarker is also known as:
- EC 3.4.24.-,
- disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain-containing protein 12,
- ADAM 12,
- ADAM metallopeptidase domain 12,
- a disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain 12 (meltrin alpha),
ADAM12 is a member of the ADAM (a disintegrin and metalloprotease) protein family. ADAM family members 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. ADAM12 has two alternatively spliced transcripts: a shorter secreted form and a longer membrane-bound form. The shorter form is found to stimulate myogenesis.
