Role of ADAM8 in experimental asthma.

Abstract

A disintegrin and metalloprotease (ADAM) family members, characterized by a metalloprotease and a disintegrin domain, are membrane-anchored glycoproteins involved in proteolysis and cell adhesion. ADAM8 is specifically induced in the experimental murine asthmatic lung. To evaluate novel pathways involved in asthma pathogenesis, using ADAM8 transgenic mice… (More)
