Assay Procedure
  • Assay Buffer: 50 mM Tris, 100 mM NaCl, 5 mM CaCl2, 0.05% Brij-35, pH 7.5
  • Recombinant Human ADAMTS5 (rhADAMTS5) (Catalog # 2198-AD)
  • Substrate: WAAG-3R (Anaspec, Catalog # 60431-1), 2 mM stock in DMSO
  • F16 Black Maxisorp Plate (Nunc, Catalog # 475515)
  • Fluorescent Plate Reader (Model: SpectraMax Gemini EM by Molecular Devices) or equivalent
  1. Dilute rhADAMTS5 to 10 µg/mL in Assay Buffer.
  2. Dilute Substrate to 50 µM in Assay Buffer.
  3. Load 50 µL of 10 µg/mL of rhADAMTS5 into a plate, and start the reaction by adding 50 µL of 50 µM Substrate. Include a Substrate Blank containing 50 µL of Assay Buffer and 50 µL of Substrate.
  4. Read at excitation and emission wavelengths of 340 nm and 420 nm (top read), respectively, in kinetic mode for 5 minutes.
  5. Calculate specific activity:

     Specific Activity (pmol/min/µg) =

Adjusted Vmax* (RFU/min) x Conversion Factor** (pmol/RFU)
amount of enzyme (µg)


      *Adjusted for Substrate Blank
      **Derived using calibration standard Abz-Gly-OH (Bachem, Catalog # E-2920).

Per Well:
  • rhADAMTS5: 0.5 µg
  • Substrate: 25 µM

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 rheumatoid arthritis. The purified rhADAMTS5 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 rhADAMTS5 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 (Catalog # 973-TM).
