Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits cadherin binding activity and metalloendopeptidase activity. Involved in several processes, including cell-cell adhesion mediated by cadherin; detection of temperature stimulus involved in sensory perception of pain; and neuronal stem cell population maintenance. Localizes to the integral component of plasma membrane and trans-Golgi network membrane. Orthologous to human MMP24 (matrix metallopeptidase 24).
