Target

  • FunctionCleaves aggrecan, a cartilage proteoglycan, and may be involved in its turnover. May play an important role in the destruction of aggrecan in arthritic diseases. Could also be a critical factor in the exacerbation of neurodegeneration in Alzheimer disease. Cleaves aggrecan at the '392-Glu-
    -Ala-393' site.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in brain, lung and heart. Expressed at very low level in placenta and skeletal muscles.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 disintegrin domain.
    Contains 1 peptidase M12B domain.
    Contains 1 TSP type-1 domain.
  • DomainThe spacer domain and the TSP type-1 domains are important for a tight interaction with the extracellular matrix.
    The conserved cysteine present in the cysteine-switch motif binds the catalytic zinc ion, thus inhibiting the enzyme. The dissociation of the cysteine from the zinc ion upon the activation-peptide release activates the enzyme.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    The precursor is cleaved by a furin endopeptidase.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.
