|Other Names||A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 5, ADAM-TS 5, ADAM-TS5, ADAMTS-5, 3424-, A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 11, ADAM-TS 11, ADAMTS-11, ADMP-2, Aggrecanase-2, ADAMTS5, ADAMTS11, ADMP2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13847a was selected from the N-term region of ADAMTS5. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Metalloproteinase that plays an important role in connective tissue organization, development, inflammation, arthritis, and cell migration. ADAMTS5 is an extracellular matrix (ECM) degrading enzyme that show proteolytic activity toward the hyalectan group of chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans (CSPGs) including aggrecan, versican, brevican and neurocan (PubMed:16133547, PubMed:18992360). Cleavage within the hyalectans occurs at Glu-Xaa recognition motifs. Plays a role in embryonic development, including limb and cardiac morphogenesis, and skeletal muscle development through its versican remodeling properties. Participates in development of brown adipose tissue and browning of white adipose tissue. Plays an important role for T-lymphocyte migration from draining lymph nodes following viral infection.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix|
|Tissue Location||Expressed at low level in placenta primarily but also detected in heart and brain, cervix, uterus, bladder, esophagus, rib cartilage, chondroblastoma, fibrous tissue and a joint capsule from an arthritic patient|

Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
ADAMTS5 cleaves aggrecan, a cartilage proteoglycan, and may be involved in its turnover. May play an important role in the destruction of aggrecan in arthritic diseases. May play a role in proteolytic processing mostly during the peri-implantation period.
