The Quantikine Human ADAM12 immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure human ADAM12 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains CHO cell-expressed recombinant human ADAM12 and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural ADAM12 showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained u...sing the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for naturally occurring ADAM12.
Natural and recombinant human ADAM12. This kit recognizes pro-ADAM12, mature ADAM12, and ADAM12/TIMP-3 complex.
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
This product is produced by and ships from R&D Systems, Inc., a Bio-Techne brand.

Members of the ADAM or MDC (Metalloprotease, Disintegrin, Cysteine-rich) family contain pro, metalloprotease-like, disintegrin-like, cysteine-rich, transmembrane and cytoplasmic domains. They play a fundamental role in diverse processes such as asthma, development, angiogenesis and cancer through their activities in cell adhesion/fusion, membrane protein shedding, and signal transduction. Over 30 members have been identified and about half of them are active metalloproteases such as ADAM8, 9, 10, 12 and 17/TACE.
