Angio-associated, migratory cell protein, also known as AAMP, is a protein which in humans is encoded by the AAMP gene.[1]


The gene product is an immunoglobulin-type protein. It is found to be expressed strongly in endothelial cells, cytotrophoblasts, and poorly differentiated colon adenocarcinoma cells found in lymphatics.

The protein contains a WD40 domain and a heparin-binding domain which mediates heparin-sensitive cell adhesion.[1]
