ADAMTS5 (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 5), also known as aggrecanase-2 and ADAMTS11, is a member of the family of secreted zinc proteases with a multi-domain structure (1, 2). The protein precursors consist of signal peptide and following domains: pro, catalytic, disintegrin-like, TS type 1 motif, cysteine-rich, spacer and a variable number of TS type 1 motifs. ADAMTS5 is an active protease effectively cleaving alpha 2-macroglobulin (3), aggrecan (4), and brevican (5), and is inhibited by TIMP-3 with inhibition constants in the subnanomolar range (6). Based on the murine model studies (7, 8), this protease may be a key enzyme in the degradation of cartilage leading to osteoarthritis and recombinant human eumatoid arthritis. The purified recombinant human ADAMTS5 starts at the
N terminus of the catalytic domain and ends at the C-terminus of the TSP-1 domain. The amino acid sequence of recombinant human ADAMTS5 is 98%, 97%, and 96% identical to that of canine, bovine, and mouse/rat. The aggrecanase activity can be inhibited by 5 mM 1,10-phenanthroline and recombinant human TIMP-3.
