Literature associating MMEL1 and primary biliary cholangitis
Membrane metallo-endopeptidase-like 1; Metalloprotease involved in sperm function, possibly by modulating the processes of fertilization and early embryonic development. Degrades a broad variety of small peptides with a preference for peptides shorter than 3 kDa containing neutral bulky aliphatic or aromatic amino acid residues. Shares the same substrate specificity with MME and cleaves peptides at the same amide bond (By similarity); Belongs to the peptidase M13 family.
Synonyms: MMEL1, MMEL1p, hMMEL1, J3KRD2, Q495T6 ...
