Summaries for ADAMTS3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ADAMTS3 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. The protein encoded by this gene is the major procollagen II N-propeptidase. A deficiency of this protein may be responsible for dermatosparaxis, a genetic defect of connective tissues. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ADAMTS3 Gene

ADAMTS3 (ADAM Metallopeptidase With Thrombospondin Type 1 Motif, 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Degradation of the extracellular matrix and Collagen biosynthesis and modifying enzymes. GO annotations related to this gene include heparin binding and metalloendopeptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is ADAMTS16.

Post-translational modifications for ADAMTS3 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 Asn83, Asn119, Asn242, Asn345, Asn475, Asn814, Asn942, Thr1087, Ser1088, Ser1094, Thr1096, Thr1146, Ser1149, Ser1150, and Thr1153
