|Application ||WB, IF, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||NP_003174, 6868|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 93 kDa|
|Application Notes||TACE antibody can be used for detection of TACE by Western blot at 0.5 μg/mL. For immunocytochemistry use 10 μg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 10 μg/mL.|
|Other Names||TACE Antibody: CSVP, TACE, NISBD, ADAM18, CD156B, CSVP, Disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain-containing protein 17, Snake venom-like protease, ADAM 17, ADAM metallopeptidase domain 17|
|Target/Specificity||TACE antibody was raised against a peptide corresponding to 17 amino acids near the carboxy terminus of human TACE.|
The immunogen is located within the last 50 amino acids of TACE.
|Reconstitution & Storage||TACE antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|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 Antibody: Tumor-necrosis factor-alpha 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-bound metalloprotease-disintegrin in the family of mammalian ADAM (for a disintegrin and metalloprotease). TACE also processes other cell surface proteins, including TNF receptor, TGFalpha, the L-selectin adhesion molecule, and alpha-cleavage of amyloid protein precursor (APP). TACE mRNA is expressed in a variety of human and murine tissues. TACE was selected as one of the few targets in cytokine activation by the Eighth International Conference of the Inflammation Research Association.
