IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
myelin-associated disintegrin metalloproteinase
- Endopeptidase of broad specificity.
In peptidase family M12. Partially responsible for the "α-secretase" activity in brain that degrades the potentially harmful β-amyloid peptide. Work with ADAM10-deficient mice supports a role in Notch signalling.
