Recombinant Human TACE/ADAM17 Protein, CF Summary

Details of Functionality
Measured by its ability to cleave a fluorogenic peptide substrate Mca-PLAQAV-Dpa-RSSSR-NH2 (Catalog # ES003). The specific activity is >500 pmol/min/µg, as measured under the described conditions. 
Spodoptera frugiperda, Sf 21 (baculovirus)-derived human TACE/ADAM17 protein
Arg215-Asn671, with a C-terminal 6-His tag
Accession #
N-terminal Sequence
Structure / Form
Mature form. Recombinant Human TACE/ADAM17 may be prone to proteolytic cleavage at C-terminus. The poly-His tag may not be present in the preparation.

Packaging, Storage & Formulations

Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
  • 6 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.
  • 3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in Tris, NaCl and Brij-35.
>90%, by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions and visualized by silver stain.
Reconstitution Instructions
Reconstitute at 100 μg/mL in sterile, deionized water.
Assay Procedure
  • Assay Buffer: 25 mM Tris, 2.5 μM ZnCl2, 0.005% Brij-35 (w/v), pH 9.0 (note: It is extremely important that the assay solution does not contain salt (CaCl2, NaCl, Na2SO4) because it inhibits TACE activity).
  • Recombinant Human TACE/ADAM17 (rhTACE) (Catalog # 930-ADB)
  • Substrate: MCA-Pro-Leu-Ala-Gln-Ala-Val-DPA-Arg-Ser-Ser-Ser-Arg-NH2 (Catalog # ES003) , 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 rhTACE to 0.2 ng/µL in Assay Buffer.
  2. Dilute Substrate to 20 µM in Assay Buffer.
  3. In a plate load 50 µL of 0.2 ng/µL rhTACE and start the reaction by adding 50 µL of 20 µM Substrate. Include a Substrate Blank containing 50 μL Assay Buffer and 50 µL Substrate.
  4. Read at excitation and emission wavelengths of 320 nm and 405 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 MCA-Pro-Leu-OH (Bachem, Catalog # M-1975).

Per Well:
  • rhTACE: 0.01 µg
  • Substrate: 10 µM

    TACE is a member of the ADAM family that contains A Disintegrin And Metalloprotease-like domain. Like other membrane-anchored ADAMs, TACE consists of a pro domain with a cysteine switch and furin cleavage sequence, a catalytic domain with the zinc-binding site and Met-turn expected for reprolysins, a disintegrin-like domain, a cysteine-rich domain, an EGF-like domain, a transmembrane domain, and the cytoplasmic domain. In addition to its ability to release the 17 kDa extracellular form of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha ) from the 26 kDa membrane-anchored TNF-alpha , TACE also plays an essential role in shedding ectodomains from a variety of proteins such as L-Selectin, Transforming Growth Factor-alpha , Amyloid Protein Precursor, and Notch-1 receptor. TACE mRNA is present in virtually every tissue and TACE protein resides both on the cell surface and in the cell.
