Target

  • Function

    In association with DPP4 is involved in the pericellular proteolysis of the extracellular matrix (ECM), the migration and invasion of endothelial cells into the ECM. May have a role in tissue remodeling during development and wound healing, and may contribute to invasiveness in malignant cancers.
  • Tissue specificity

    Fibroblast specific.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the peptidase S9B family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    N-glycosylated.
    The N-terminus may be blocked.
  • Cellular localization

    Cell membrane. Cell projection > lamellipodium membrane. Cell projection > invadopodium membrane. Found in cell surface lamellipodia, invadopodia and on shed vesicles. Colocalized with DPP4 in invadopodia and lamellipodia of migratory activated endothelial cells in collagenous matrix. Colocalized with DPP4 on endothelial cells of capillary-like microvessels but not large vessels within invasive breast ductal carcinoma.
