Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits cell adhesion molecule binding activity; metal ion binding activity; and metallopeptidase activity. Involved in several processes, including leukocyte migration; positive regulation of intracellular signal transduction; and positive regulation of leukocyte migration. Localizes to the alpha9-beta1 integrin-ADAM8 complex. Predicted to colocalize with the alpha9-beta1 integrin-vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 complex. Orthologous to human ADAM8 (ADAM metallopeptidase domain 8).
