Summaries for ADAMTS16 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ADAMTS16 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the ADAMTS (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs) protein family. ADAMTS family members share several distinct protein modules, including a propeptide region, a metalloproteinase domain, a disintegrin-like domain, and a thrombospondin type 1 (TS) motif. Individual members of this family differ in the number of C-terminal TS motifs, and some have unique C-terminal domains. The protein encoded by this gene has high sequence similarity to the protein encoded by ADAMTS18, another family member. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

Post-translational modifications for ADAMTS16 Gene

  • Glycosylated. Can be O-fucosylated by POFUT2 on a serine or a threonine residue found within the consensus sequence C1-X(2)-(S/T)-C2-G of the TSP type-1 repeat domains where C1 and C2 are the first and second cysteine residue of the repeat, respectively. Fucosylated repeats can then be further glycosylated by the addition of a beta-1,3-glucose residue by the glucosyltransferase, B3GALTL. Fucosylation mediates the efficient secretion of ADAMTS family members. Also can be C-glycosylated with one or two mannose molecules on tryptophan residues within the consensus sequence W-X-X-W of the TPRs, and N-glycosylated. These other glycosylations can also facilitate secretion (By similarity).
  • The precursor is cleaved by a furin endopeptidase.
  • Glycosylation at Asn156, Asn310, Asn741, Asn780, Asn835, Asn905, and Asn935
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus

  • Q8TE57
  • The spacer domain and the TSP type-1 domains are important for a tight interaction with the extracellular matrix.
  • The conserved cysteine present in the cysteine-switch motif binds the catalytic zinc ion, thus inhibiting the enzyme. The dissociation of the cysteine from the zinc ion upon the activation-peptide release activates the enzyme
  • Contains 1 disintegrin domain.
  • Contains 1 peptidase M12B domain.
  • Contains 1 PLAC domain.
  • Contains 6 TSP type-1 domains.
