This antibody can recognize all isoforms of ADAM12. ADAM12 has 4 forms: 120 kDa full-length form, 90 kDa mature (processed form that lack the pro domain);50-68 kDa degradation product and 27 kDa pro domain.
ADAM12 is a member of the ADAM (a disintegrin and metalloprotease-like domain) family. Two forms of ADAM12 have been described: ADAM12S and ADAM12L (short and long forms). The short form is a soluble form lacking the transmembrane and cytoplasmic domains. The short form of ADAM12 was reported to provoke myogenesis, and the lack of cytoplasmic domain suggests different regulation pathways (although both forms can be expressed in the same tissue).
