ADAM15 is an adherens junction molecule whose surface expression can be driven by VE-cadherin.

ADAM15 belongs to the family of proteins containing disintegrin and metalloprotease domains (ADAM) that have been implicated in cell adhesion via integrin binding and shedding of cell surface molecules. Here we provide the first report on the localization of an ADAM in adherens junctions. We show that ADAM15 colocalizes with a cell adhesion molecule… CONTINUE READING
