CLMP (Coxsackie- and adenovirus receptor-like membrane protein), also known as ACAM (adipocyte adhesion molecule) or ASAM, is a member of the CTX (cortical thymocyte marker in Xenopus) family of proteins. CTX family proteins are type I transmembrane proteins within the Ig superfamily that localize to junctional complexes between endothelial and epithelial cells and may play a role in cell-cell adhesion. CLMP is predominantly expressed in epithelial cells within different tissues and in the white adipose tissue. It may be involved in the cell-cell adhesion and may play a role in adipocyte differentiation and development of obesity.
