Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits peptidase activity, acting on L-amino acid peptides; protein homodimerization activity; and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cochlea development; proteolysis; and regulation of neurotransmitter receptor localization to postsynaptic specialization membrane. Localizes to several cellular components, including glutamatergic synapse; pore complex; and postsynaptic density. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; cranial ganglion; foregut-midgut junction; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease 18 and reticulate acropigmentation of Kitamura. Orthologous to human ADAM10 (ADAM metallopeptidase domain 10).
