Shipped at 4°C. Store at +4°C short term (1-2 weeks). Upon delivery aliquot. Store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle.
ab41037 appears to detect the 73kDa cleaved form of ADAMTS5. The precursor of this secreted protein is cleaved at a furin cleavage site by a furin endopeptidase.
Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml. Perform enzymatic antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Cleaves aggrecan, a cartilage proteoglycan, and may be involved in its turnover. May play an important role in the destruction of aggrecan in arthritic diseases. May play a role in proteolytic processing mostly during the peri-implantation period.
Expressed at low level in placenta primarily but also detected in heart and brain, cervix, uterus, bladder, esophagus, rib cartilage, chondroblastoma, fibrous tissue and a joint capsule from an arthritic patient.
The 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.
The precursor is cleaved by a furin endopeptidase.

ab41037 staining ADAMTS5 in mouse knee joint tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and an enzymatic mediated antigen retrieval step was performed using Proteinase K. Samples were then blocked with 5% serum for 10 minutes at room temperature followed by incubation with the primary antibody at 10µg/ml for 1 hour. An undiluted HRP-conjugated human anti-rabbit monoclonal was used as secondary antibody.
