ADAMTS4, also known as aggrecanase-1, is a Metallopeptidase M12B type protease that is responsible for degradation of the articular cartilage protein aggrecan and the brain extracellular matrix proteoglycan brevican. The ADAMTS4 protein contains a signal sequence, a propeptide domain, a catalytic domain, a disintegrin-like motif, and a C-terminal domain with a thrombospondin (TSP) type 1 motif. ADAMTS4 has been implicated in inflammatory joint diseases, and it also may be a factor in the progression of glioma and Alzheimer's disease.
ADAMTS4 antibody can be used in ELISA, Western Blot, immunohistochemistry starting at 5 μg/mL, and immunofluorescence starting at 10 μg/mL.
