ADAMTSai8(redirected from A Disintegrin and Metalloproteinase with Thrombospondin Motifs 8)
ADAMTSai8An ADAMTSs family enzyme encoded by ADAMTS8 on chromosome 11q25, which was first identified by cDNA in the heart and lung where its expression is highest (in adult and fetal lung). ADAMTS8 is antiangiogenic (more than thrombospondin-1 or endostatin, but less so than ADAMTS1).
