Summaries for ADAMTS9 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ADAMTS9 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the ADAMTS (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs) protein family. Members of the family 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. Members of the ADAMTS family have been implicated in the cleavage of proteoglycans, the control of organ shape during development, and the inhibition of angiogenesis. This gene is localized to chromosome 3p14.3-p14.2, an area known to be lost in hereditary renal tumors. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ADAMTS9 Gene

ADAMTS9 (ADAM Metallopeptidase With Thrombospondin Type 1 Motif, 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Degradation of the extracellular matrix and Degradation of the extracellular matrix. GO annotations related to this gene include metalloendopeptidase activity and metallopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADAMTS16.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ADAMTS9 Gene

  • Cleaves the large aggregating proteoglycans, aggrecan and versican. Has a protease-independent function in promoting the transport from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi apparatus of a variety of secretory cargos.

Post-translational modifications for ADAMTS9 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 Asn112, Asn135, Asn271, Asn749, Asn840, Asn1213, Asn1267, Asn1788, and Asn1806
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus

  • Q9P2N4
  • The spacer domain and the TSP type-1 domains are important for a tight interaction with the extracellular matrix.
  • The ancillary domains, including the TSRs domain, are required for specific extracellular localization and for its versicanase and aggrecanase activities
  • 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
  • The GON domain mediates protease-independent function in ER to Golgi transport
  • Contains 1 disintegrin domain.
  • Contains 1 GON domain.
  • Contains 1 peptidase M12B domain.
  • Contains 15 TSP type-1 domains.
