  • Function

    Metalloprotease that may play a role in the degradation of COMP.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas. Detected in meniscus, bone, tendon, cartilage, synovium, fat and ligaments.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 disintegrin domain.
    Contains 1 peptidase M12B domain.
    Contains 1 PLAC domain.
    Contains 8 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

    N-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. N- and C-glycosylations can also facilitate secretion. O-glycosylated proteoglycan. Contains chondroitin sulfate.
    May be cleaved by a furin endopeptidase (By similarity). The precursor is sequentially processed.
  • Cellular localization

    Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix. Also found associated with the external cell surface.
