Definitions for EDA
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word EDA
Origin: From ead, also short for compound given names beginning thus, particularly Edith.
Ectodysplasin-A is a protein that in humans is encoded by the EDA gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a type II membrane protein that can be cleaved by furin to produce a secreted form. The encoded protein, which belongs to the tumor necrosis factor family, acts as a homotrimer and may be involved in cell-cell signaling during the development of ectodermal organs. Defects in this gene are a cause of ectodermal dysplasia, anhidrotic, which is also known as X-linked hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia. Several transcript variants encoding many different isoforms have been found for this gene.
