|Gene:||ADAM7; ADAM metallopeptidase domain 7|
|Aliases:||EAPI, GP83, GP-83, ADAM 7, ADAM-7|
|Summary:||This gene encodes a member of the ADAMs family of zinc proteases. These transmembrane proteins play roles in multiple processes including cell signaling, adhesion and migration. The encoded protein lacks protease activity and may play roles in protein-protein interactions and cell adhesion processes including sperm-egg fusion. Mutations in this gene may be involved in the progression of melanoma. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011]|
