ADAM metallopeptidase with thrombospondin type 1 motif, 19

This gene encodes a member of the ADAMTS (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motif) protein family. Members of the family share several distinct protein modules, including a propeptide region, a metalloproteinase domain, a disintegrin-like domain, and a thrombospondin type 1 (TS) motif. Individual members of this family differ in the number of C-terminal TS motifs, and some have unique C-terminal domains. The protein encoded by this gene has high sequence similarity to the protein encoded by ADAMTS16, another family member. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)
Papers on ADAMTS19
Genome-wide association study in premature ovarian failure patients suggests ADAMTS19 as a possible candidate gene.
Dutch POF Consortium et al., Utrecht, Netherlands. In Hum Reprod, 2009
Although limited by sample size, this proof-of-principle study's findings reveal ADAMTS19 as a possible candidate gene for premature ovarian failure and thus a larger follow-up study is warranted.
