FUNCTION: This gene encodes a member of a disintegrin and metalloprotease (ADAM) family of endoproteases that play important roles in various biological processes including cell signaling, adhesion and migration. This gene is specifically expressed in epididymis where the encoded protein is transferred to the sperm surface during epididymal transit. This gene is located adjacent to a related gene from the ADAM family of proteins on chromosome 14. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2015]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit reduced male fertility with decreased cell height in caput epididymis, spermatic granuloma, kinked sperm flagellum and reduced sperm motility. [provided by MGI curators]
