Predictions regarding the function of ADAMs that were not identified in a functional or genetic screen are mainly based on what is known about the role of their different protein domains in other ADAMs or in related proteins found in snake venom. The disintegrin domain of ADAMs, for example, is related to snake venom integrin ligands called disintegrins (Huang et al. 1987; Niewiarowski et al. 1994). Therefore “orphan” ADAMs, that is ADAMs of unknown function, might have roles in cell-cell or cell-matrix interactions (Blobel et al.
