mig-17 [Browse genome (BioProject PRJNA13758)] [Legacy GBrowse]
Is an ortholog of several human genes including ADAMTS13 (ADAM metallopeptidase with thrombospondin type 1 motif 13); ADAMTS3 (ADAM metallopeptidase with thrombospondin type 1 motif 3); and ADAMTS4 (ADAM metallopeptidase with thrombospondin type 1 motif 4). Exhibits metallopeptidase activity. Is involved in several processes, including gonad morphogenesis; protein maturation; and regulation of distal tip cell migration. Localizes to basement membrane and extracellular space. Is expressed in body wall musculature; gonad; hypodermis; intestine; and ventral nerve cord. Human ortholog(s) of this gene are implicated in Weill-Marchesani syndrome; autosomal recessive isolated ectopia lentis 2; and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura.
