  • Function

    Sperm surface membrane protein that may be involved in sperm-egg plasma membrane adhesion and fusion during fertilization. Could have a direct role in sperm-zona binding or migration of sperm from the uterus into the oviduct. Interactions with egg membrane could be mediated via binding between its disintegrin-like domain to one or more integrins receptors on the egg. This is a non catalytic metalloprotease-like protein.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed specifically in spermatogenic cells in the seminiferous cells. Not detected in fetal tissues.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 disintegrin domain.
    Contains 1 EGF-like domain.
    Contains 1 peptidase M12B domain.
  • Domain

    A tripeptide motif (FEE) within disintegrin-like domain could be involved in the binding to egg integrin receptor and thus could mediate sperm/egg binding.
  • Post-translational

    The prodomain and the metalloprotease domain are cleaved during the epididymal maturation of the spermatozoa.
