ADAM1cda23(redirected from A Disintegrin And Metalloproteinase Domain 23)
ADAM1cda23An ADAMs family protein encoded by ADAM23 on chromosome 2q33, which is highly expressed in the brain. It is essential for normal brain activity, possibly by serving as a ligand for binding proteins, and may play a role in cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions. Knock-out mice lacking expression of ADAM23 have ataxia, tremor and short life spans.
