PA1-1751A detects ADAMTS5 from porcine, bovine, and human samples. PA1-1751A is specific for ADAMTS5 and shows no cross-reactivity with other ADAMTS family members.
PA1-1751A has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects a major band at ~68 kDa protein representing ADAMTS5 from porcine cartilage extract. On human recombinant ADAMTS5 this antibody detects a major band at ~85 kDa. Depending on the extent of C-terminal processing, several smaller bands may also be seen using this antibody.
PA1-1751A immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues C K(636) N G Y Q S D A K G V K T F(649) of human ADAMTS5. This polyclonal antibody has been referred to as: JSCKNG.
ADAMTS5, also known as Implantin or Aggrecanase 2, is a member of the larger family of ADAMs (A Disintegrin And Metalloproteinase) metalloproteinases containing thrombospondin (TS) repeats. ADAMTS5 (A Disintegrin And Metalloproteinase with Thrombospondin-5 motif) was first described as ADAMTS5, a protein elevated in mice during the peri-implantion period. At the same time, another group identified Aggrecanase 11, a protein elevated in arthritic synovium. The name was later changed to ADAMTS5. ADAMTS5 is expressed in human and mouse. It has been found in heart, lung, cervix, uterus, ovary, brain, cartilage, and numerous other tissues, as well as chondroblastoma cell lines.
