Polyclonal Rabbit Purified B
A disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain-containing protein 9 (ADAM 9) belongs to a family of transmembrane, membrane-anchored, disintegrin-containing proteins that are involved in several biological functions such as protein ectodomain shedding, cell fusion, and cell adhesion. ADAMs contain several characteristic domains, two of which, the protease and disintegrin domains, are noted for their homology to snake venom metalloprotease. The exact function of ADAM 9 is yet unknown, however it is widely distributed, is found within keratinocytes, and is ideally placed on the cell membrane, which some studies have suggested supports a role in cell migration and motility. Alternative splicing results in two isoforms; isoform 1 is found within the cell membrane and is considered a single-pass type 1 membrane protein, while isoform 2 is secreted. Mutations in ADAM 9 expression are causal to cone-rod dystrophy type 9 or CORD9 which is characterized by visible retinal pigment deposits and loss of cone photoreceptors leading and rod degeneration, ultimately resulting in severe loss of vision.
