Target

  • FunctionMay be involved in sperm maturation and/or fertilization.
  • Tissue specificityTestis specific.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 disintegrin domain.
    Contains 1 EGF-like domain.
    Contains 1 peptidase M12B domain.
  • DomainA tripeptide motif (VGE) within disintegrin-like domain could be involved in the binding to egg integrin receptor and thus could mediate sperm/egg binding.
    The cysteine-rich domain encodes putative cell-fusion peptides, which could be involved in sperm-egg fusion.
    The conserved cysteine present in the cysteine-switch motif binds the catalytic zinc ion, thus inhibiting the enzyme. The dissociation of the cysteine from the zinc ion upon the activation-peptide release activates the enzyme.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Has no obvious cleavage site for furin endopeptidase, suggesting that the proteolytic processing is regulated.
  • Cellular localizationMembrane.
