Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have metal ion binding activity and metalloendopeptidase activity. Predicted to be involved in proteolysis. Predicted to localize to collagen-containing extracellular matrix and microfibril. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; cerebral cortex; embryo mesenchyme; hemolymphoid system gland; and musculoskeletal system. Used to study Weill-Marchesani syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Weill-Marchesani syndrome. Orthologous to human ADAMTS10 (ADAM metallopeptidase with thrombospondin type 1 motif 10).
