Technical Data
ADAM 17, CT (Disintegrin and Metalloproteinase Domain-containing Protein 17, Snake Venom-like Protease, TNF-alpha Convertase, TNF-alpha-converting Enzyme, CD156b, CSVP, TACE, ADAM17)
Tumor-necrosis factor-a is a pro-inflammatory cytokine and contributes to a variety of inflammatory disease responses and programmed cell death. TNF-a is synthesized as a 26K type II membrane-bound precursor that is cleaved by a convertase to generate secreted 17K mature TNF-a. TNF-a converting enzyme (TACE) protein was recently purified and the human and mouse TACE cDNAs were cloned by several groups separately. 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, TGFa, the L-selectin adhesion molecule, and alpha-cleavage of amyloid protein precursor (APP). TACE mRNA is expressed in a variety of human and murine tissues.
