This rabbit IgG polyclonal antibody was generated against the pro-domain of mouse ADAM17 and is specific for the pro-domain of mouse ADAM17.
The ADAM (A Disintegrin And Metalloprotease Domain) family is a unique group of proteins that has the ability to cleave or shed extracellular portions of transmembrane proteins. In addition, ADAMs are involved in cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions (e.g., fertilization, muscle development and neurogenesis).
ADAM17 (also referred to as Tumor Necrosis Factor Convertase, TACE) is involved in the processing of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-a) at the surface of the cell, and is also required for shedding several ligands of the epidermal growth factor receptor and many other membrane proteins. The prodomain of catalytically active ADAMs is thought to act as an inhibitor of the protease via a cysteine-switch mechanism. Prodomain removal is therefore thought to be a prerequisite for ADAM17 protease activity.
