  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in fetal liver and kidney, but not in any of the adult tissues examined.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 disintegrin domain.
    Contains 1 peptidase M12B domain.
    Contains 3 TSP type-1 domains.
  • Domain
    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.
  • Post-translational
    The precursor is cleaved by a furin endopeptidase.
    Glycosylated. Can be O-fucosylated by POFUT2 on a serine or a threonine residue found within the consensus sequence C1-X(2)-(S/T)-C2-G of the TSP type-1 repeat domains where C1 and C2 are the first and second cysteine residue of the repeat, respectively. Fucosylated repeats can then be further glycosylated by the addition of a beta-1,3-glucose residue by the glucosyltransferase, B3GALTL. Fucosylation mediates the efficient secretion of ADAMTS family members. Also can be C-glycosylated with one or two mannose molecules on tryptophan residues within the consensus sequence W-X-X-W of the TPRs, and N-glycosylated. These other glycosylations can also facilitate secretion.

  • Anti-ADAMTS15 antibody (ab28516) at 1/1000 dilution + Supernatant of 293 EBNA cells overexpressing ADAMTS15. at 20 µl

    Predicted band size: 103 kDa
    Observed band size: 55 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)

    The image shows an overexpressed fragment of ADAMTS15, not the full-length protein.
