|Calculated MW||93021 Da|
|Other Names||TNF-alpha converting enzyme, ADAM17|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) of antibody in PBS, 0.01 % BSA, 0.01 % thimerosal, and 50 % glycerol, pH 7.2|
|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|

TACE (TNF-alpha converting enzyme, ADAM17) is a membrane-bound Metalloprotease from the ADAM (a disintegrin and Metalloprotease) family of proteins. It cleaves 26kDa type II membrane-bound precursor of TNF-a into 17 kDa mature form which is secreted. TACE is also known to process other membrane proteins including TNF receptor, TGF-alpha and amyloid protein precursor. Recombinant active untagged TACE amino acid sequence is from Arg 215 to Asn 651
