ADAM 17 precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

General description

A disintegrin and metallopeptidase domain 17 (ADAM17) belongs to ADAM family of genes, which has a characteristic cysteine rich region called disintegrin and a metalloproteinase domain. This gene is located on chromosome 2, spans 55kb and has 9 exons. In adult humans, ADAM17 is expressed on multiple tissues such as, heart, muscle, kidney, placenta, pancreas, thymus, small intestine, ovaries, testes and prostate. In fetus, it is expressed in brain, lung, liver and kidney.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide


All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project (www.proteinatlas.org)and as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.

The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link.

Biochem/physiol Actions

ADAMs (A disintegrin and metallopeptidases) are called ectodomain sheddases and ADAM17 is an angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) sheddase. It also processes and sheds multiple cell surface molecules such as, adhesion molecules and cytokines. It produces the soluble form of tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α), along with the processing of I-CAM, V-CAM, IL-6R, L-selectin etc. These, in turn, play a role in development, regeneration and inflammation of the circulatory system. Polymorphism rs12692386 in ADAM17 gene is associated with an increased susceptibility to abdominal aortic aneurysm. This gene is also up-regulated in myocardial infarction patients, as well as in atherosclerosis patients. It also plays a role in the pathophysiology of ischemic strokes (IS). ADAM17 aids in tumor progression by facilitating tumor proliferation and invasion, as in the case of non-small cell lung cancer.
