    text
  • type II transmembrane protein
  • ADAM7 and ITM2B are located in detergent-resistant regions known to be highly correlated with membrane lipid rafts
  • basic FUNCTION
  • may be playing a role in differentiation of neuronal cells
  • possibly involved in some role in nerve terminals
  • linked to the amyloid processing pathway in the brain
  • implicated in influencing APP processing in cells and Abeta deposition
  • might act as a receptor protein that regulates insulin-degrading enzyme levels that in turn influences APP metabolism in a previously unrecognized way
  • CELLULAR PROCESS
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS development
    text neurogenesis
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling sensory transduction/vision
    a component
  • homodimerizes with the involvement of intermolecular disulfide bonds
  • ADAM7 forms complexes with calnexin (CANX), heat shock protein 5 (HSPA5), and integral membrane protein 2B (ITM2B)
  • INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • association of ADAM7 with ITM2B is remarkably promoted during sperm capacitation owing to a conformational change of ADAM7 that occurs in concert with the capacitation process (
