ADAM metallopeptidase domain 20

This gene encodes a member of the ADAM (a disintegrin and metalloprotease domain) family. Members of this family are membrane-anchored proteins structurally related to snake venom disintegrins, and have been implicated in a variety of biological processes involving cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions, including fertilization, muscle development, and neurogenesis. The expression of this gene is testis-specific. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Immunofluorescence testing suggested that ADAM20-like was localized on the anterior part of the sperm plasma membrane.
ADAMs (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase) messenger RNA expression in Helicobacter pylori-infected, normal, and neoplastic gastric mucosa.
Crabtree et al., Leeds, United Kingdom. In J Infect Dis, 2002
Reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction analysis of gastric biopsy specimens from patients with and without H. pylori showed that infection was associated with increased expression of ADAM 10 and ADAM 17 (tumor necrosis factor-alpha-converting enzyme) in antral mucosa, but no increases in ADAM 15 and ADAM 20 were observed.
The identification of seven metalloproteinase-disintegrin (ADAM) genes from genomic libraries.
Cerretti et al., Seattle, United States. In Gene, 1999
Two of these genes lack introns and show testis-specific expression (ADAM20 and ADAM21), while the other two genes contain introns (ADAM22 and ADAM23) and are expressed predominantly in the brain.
ADAM 20 and 21; two novel human testis-specific membrane metalloproteases with similarity to fertilin-alpha.
Hooft van Huijsduijnen, Genève, Switzerland. In Gene, 1998
Two novel membrane disintegrin-metalloproteases, ADAM 20 and ADAM 21 were cloned from a human testis cDNA library.
