|Other Names||A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 13, ADAM-TS 13, ADAM-TS13, ADAMTS-13, von Willebrand factor-cleaving protease, vWF-CP, vWF-cleaving protease, ADAMTS13, C9orf8|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7438c was selected from the Center region of human ADAMTS13. 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||Cleaves the vWF multimers in plasma into smaller forms thereby controlling vWF-mediated platelet thrombus formation.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted. Note=Secretion enhanced by O-fucosylation of TSP type-1 repeats|
|Tissue Location||Plasma. Expressed primarily in liver.|

ADAMTS13 is a member of the ADAMTS (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motif) protein family. Members of the family share several distinct protein modules, including a propeptide region, a metalloproteinase domain, a disintegrin-like domain, and a thrombospondin type 1 (TS) motif. Individual members of this family differ in the number of C-terminal TS motifs, and some have unique C-terminal domains. The enzyme is the von Willebrand Factor (vWF)-cleaving protease, which is responsible for cleaving at the site of Tyr842-Met843 of the vWF molecule. A deficiency of this enzyme is associated with thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura.
