Target Name ADAM12
SwissProt ID Link O43184
Function Involved in skeletal muscle regeneration, specifically at the onset of cell fusion. Also involved in macrophage-derived giant cells (MGC) and osteoclast formation from mononuclear precursors.
Subcellular Location Isoform 1: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein.; Isoform 2: Secreted.; Isoform 3: Secreted.; Isoform 4: Secreted.
Post-Translational Modification The precursor is cleaved by a furin endopeptidase.
Tissue Specificity Isoform 1 is expressed in placenta and skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle. Isoform 2 seems to be expressed only in placenta or in embryo and fetus. Both forms were expressed in some tumor cells lines. Not detected in brain, lung, liver, kidney or pancreas.
Subunit Structure Interacts with alpha-actinin-2 and with syndecans. Interacts with SH3PXD2A. Interacts with FST3. Interacts with GNB2L1/RACK1; the interaction is required for PKC-dependent translocation of ADAM12 to the cell membrane.
Sequence Similarities Contains 1 disintegrin domain. Contains 1 EGF-like domain. Contains 1 peptidase M12B domain.
