  • 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.

Thank you for contacting us with your question and for your patience while I have been in touch with the lab regarding your enquiry.

I've heard back from the lab, and the antibody was actually tested on a recombinantly expressed fragment of the ADAMTS15 protein in 293 EBNA cells.This fragment is what is seen in the Western Blot on our website, and as it is not the full length protein it runs much lower on the blot. However, the antibody should recognize full size ADAMTS-15 at the expected 103 kDa as well.

I hope this information will be useful, but please let me know if you have further questions or if there is anything else that we can do for you and I'll be happy to help.
