Summaries for ADAMTS20 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ADAMTS20 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the ADAMTS family of zinc-dependent proteases. The encoded protein has a signal peptide that is cleaved to release the mature peptide, which is secreted and found in the extracellular matrix. This protein may be involved in tissue remodeling. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]

GeneCards Summary for ADAMTS20 Gene

ADAMTS20 (ADAM Metallopeptidase With Thrombospondin Type 1 Motif 20) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are O-linked glycosylation and Metabolism of proteins.

Post-translational modifications for ADAMTS20 Gene

  • The precursor is cleaved by a furin endopeptidase.
  • 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).
  • Glycosylation at posLast=18521852, Asn1781, posLast=17631763, posLast=15721572, posLast=15421542, Asn1456, Asn1061, posLast=870870, Asn809, posLast=728728, posLast=717717, Asn702, Asn445, Asn191, and posLast=9292
