This Antibody was verified by Knockdown to ensure that the antibody binds to the antigen stated.
PA1-1749A detects ADAMTS4 from porcine, bovine, mouse and human samples. PA1-1749A is specific for ADAMTS4 and shows no cross-reactivity with other ADAMTS family members.
PA1-1749A has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects ADAMTS4 at ~68, ~53 and 30 kDa protein representing ADAMTS4 and its proteolytic fragments. Depending on the extent of C-terminal processing, several smaller bands may also be seen using this antibody.
PA1-1749A immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues C V(394) M A H V D P E E P(403) of mouse ADAMTS4. PA1-1749A immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-234) is available for use in neutralization and control procedures. This polyclonal antibody has been referred to as: JSCVMA. PA1-1749A has been used in combination with PA1-1750 for detection of all ADAMTS4 processed forms.
This gene encodes a member of the ADAMTS 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 motif. Individual members of this family differ in the number of C-terminal TS motifs, and some have unique C-terminal domains. The enzyme encoded by this gene lacks a C-terminal TS motif. It is responsible for the degradation of aggrecan, a major proteoglycan of cartilage, and brevican, a brain-specific extracellular matrix protein. The cleavage of aggrecan and brevican suggests key roles of this enzyme in arthritic disease and in the central nervous system, potentially, in the progression of glioma.
