ADAM9 Cleaves and releases a number of molecules with important roles in tumorigenesis and angiogenesis, such as TEK, KDR, EPHB4, CD40, VCAM1 and CDH5. May mediate cell-cell, cell-matrix interactions and regulate the motility of cells via interactions with integrins. Isoform 2: May act as alpha-secretase for amyloid precursor protein (APP). Widely expressed. Expressed in chondrocytes. Isoform 2 is highly expressed in liver and heart. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
