|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||93021 Da|
|Other Names||TACE, CD156b, Disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain-containing protein 17; ADAM 17; TNF-alpha-converting enzyme; TNF-alpha convertase; Snake venom-like protease|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) peptide affinity purified rabbit anti-TACE polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 50% glycerol, 1% BSA, 0.02% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Precautions||TACE Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Cleaves 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. Acts as an activator of Notch pathway by mediating cleavage of Notch, generating the membrane-associated intermediate fragment called Notch extracellular truncation (NEXT). Plays a role in the proteolytic processing of ACE2.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously 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|

Tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) is a proinflammatory cytokine and contributes to a variety of inflammatory disease responses and programmed cell death. TNF-α is synthesized as a 26K type II membrane-bound precursor that is cleaved by a convertase to generate secreted 17K mature TNF-α. TNF-α converting enzyme (TACE) protein was recently purified and the human and mouse TACE cDNAs were cloned by several groups separately. TACE is a membrane-bond metalloprotease-disintegrin in the family of mammalian ADAM (for a disintegrin and metalloprotease). TACE also processes other cell surface proteins, including TNF receptor, TGF-α, L-selectin adhesion molecule, and alpha-cleavage of amyloid protein precursor (APP). TACE mRNA is expressed in a variety of human and murine tissues.
