Technical Data
ADAM 23 (A Disintegrin And Metalloproteinase 23)
ADAM23 (a disintegrin and metalloprotease domain 23; also MDC3) is a 100kD member
of the M12B peptidase family of enzymes. It is expressed on fetal neurons in the hippocampus and cerebellum, and serves as a counter-receptor for alpha v beta 3 integrin. The human
ADAM23 proprecursor is a 773aa type I transmembrane (TM) protein. It contains a 227aa cleavable proregion (aa60-286) and a 506 aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa287-792) that is part of a 70kD mature molecule. The ECD contains a nonfunctional metalloprotease domain (aa 299-494), an integrin-binding disintegrin region (aa511-585), and a Cys-rich domain (aa589- 611). Two splice variants exist. One shows an in-frame 46aa substitution for aa787-832 that generates a soluble form, while a second shows an in-frame 31aaTM substitution for aa787- 817. Over aa 1-585, human ADAM23 is 92% aa identical to mouse ADAM23.

Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry: 25ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at 4C for short-term only. Reconstitute to nominal volume by adding sterile 40-50% glycerol and store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
