Abstract

CD156 is a member of a family proteins characterized by a disintegrin and a metalloprotease domain (ADAM). These molecules are phylogenically conserved but have individual roles in a variety of cells. Here, Shunsuke Yamamoto and colleagues discuss data suggesting that ADAM family proteins have important roles in the immune system.
