Product nameAnti-ADAM17 antibody
See all ADAM17 primary antibodies
DescriptionRabbit polyclonal to ADAM17
SpecificityThis antibody recognizes ADAM17, but does not react with other ADAMs. ab39163 reacts with an epitope located in the activation site (cysteine switch and furin cleavage site) of ADAM17.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab39163 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||1/1000 - 1/5000. Detects a band of approximately 120 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 93 kDa). 1/1000 (when using colorimetric substrates such as BCIP/NBT) and 1/5000 (for chemiluminescent substrates). Higher concentrations of antibody may be needed for samples from more distantly related species. Detects a band of approximately 120 kDa in reduced Western blots of conditioned media or cell lysates, which is converted to a 55-60 kDa band.Note: EDTA/EGTA treatment of tissues or lysates is required to see latent zymogen. Dilution optimised using Chromogenic detection.|
|IHC-P||Use at an assay dependent concentration. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
|ICC/IF||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
FunctionCleaves the membrane-bound precursor of TNF-alpha to its mature soluble form. Responsible for the proteolytical release of soluble JAM3 from endothelial cells surface. Responsible for the proteolytic release of several other cell-surface proteins, including p75 TNF-receptor, interleukin 1 receptor type II, p55 TNF-receptor, transforming growth factor-alpha, L-selectin, growth hormone receptor, MUC1 and the amyloid precursor protein. Also involved in the activation of Notch pathway.
Tissue specificityUbiquitously expressed. Expressed at highest levels in adult heart, placenta, skeletal muscle, pancreas, spleen, thymus, prostate, testes, ovary and small intestine, and in fetal brain, lung, liver and kidney.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 disintegrin domain.
Contains 1 peptidase M12B domain.
DomainMust be membrane anchored to cleave the different substrates. The cytoplasmic domain is not required for the this activity. Only the catalytic domain is essential to shed TNF and p75 TNFR.
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.
modificationsThe precursor is cleaved by a furin endopeptidase.
Phosphorylated. Stimulation by growth factor or phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate induces phosphorylation of Ser-819 but decreases phosphorylation of Ser-791.

The image shows ab39163 detecting mouse ADAM17 expressed in transfected HeLa cells. The cells were fixed in methanol and incubated with 10 µg/ml ab39163 for 1 hour at 20°C.
Anti-ADAM17 antibody (ab39163) at 1/4000 dilution + MDA-MB231 lysate
Donkey anti-Rabbit at 1/10000 dilution
Predicted band size: 93 kDa
ab39163 detected ADAM17 protein in lysates of the highly invasive human breast cancer cell line MDA-MB231. ab39163 was incubated at a dilution of 1/4000 for 16 hours at 4°C in PBS + 5% Milk. For further details please refer to the Abreview.

Sections were stained using an automated system DAKO Autostainer Plus , at room temperature. Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3-in-1 AR buffer EDTA pH 9.0 in a DAKO PT Link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 minutes. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 minutes and detected with Dako Envision Flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that for manual staining we recommend to optimize the primary antibody concentration and incubation time (overnight incubation), and amplification may be required.
