Gene Symbol ADAM17
Gene Full Name ADAM metallopeptidase domain 17
Background TNF is synthesized as a 26kDa type II membrane-bound precursor that is cleaved by a convertase to generate secreted 17kDa mature TNF . TNF converting enzyme (TACE) has been identified, and human and mouse TACE cDNAs have been cloned. TACE is a membrane-bound metalloprotease-disintegrin in the family of mammalian ADAM (for a disintegrin and metalloprotease). TACE also processes other cell surface proteins, including TNF receptor, TGF , L-selectin, and alpha-cleavage of amyloid protein precursor (APP). TACE mRNA is expressed in a variety of human and mouse tissues.
Function Cleaves the membrane-bound precursor of TNF-alpha to its mature soluble form. Responsible for the proteolytical release of soluble JAM3 from endothelial cells surface. Responsible for the proteolytic release of several other cell-surface proteins, including p75 TNF-receptor, interleukin 1 receptor type II, p55 TNF-receptor, transforming growth factor-alpha, L-selectin, growth hormone receptor, MUC1 and the amyloid precursor protein. Acts as an activator of Notch pathway by mediating cleavage of Notch, generating the membrane-associated intermediate fragment called Notch extracellular truncation (NEXT). Plays a role in the proteolytic processing of ACE2. [UniProt]
Research Area Cancer antibody; Cell Biology and Cellular Response antibody; Developmental Biology antibody; Metabolism antibody; Neuroscience antibody; Signaling Transduction antibody
Calculated MW 93 kDa
PTM The precursor is cleaved by a furin endopeptidase.
Phosphorylated. Stimulation by growth factor or phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate induces phosphorylation of Ser-819 but decreases phosphorylation of Ser-791. Phosphorylation at THR-735 by MAPK14 is required for ADAM17-mediated ectodomain shedding.
