Detects human ADAM8 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. Detects aa 498‑653 of rhADAM8, which corresponds to the cysteine-rich and EGF-like domains. In direct ELISAs, no cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) ADAM9, rhADAM10, rhADAM15, rhBACE, or rhTACE is observed.
Monoclonal Mouse IgG1 Clone # 143338
Protein A or G purified from hybridoma culture supernatant
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant human ADAM8 ectodomain Asp158-Ser653 Accession # P78325
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Detection of Human ADAM8 by Western Blot. Western blot shows Recombinant Human ADAM8 aa158-653 and Recombinant Human ADAM8 aa 158-497. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human ADAM8 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB10311) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for ADAM8 aa158-653 at approximately 65 kDa (as indicated). The antibody did not detect ADAM8 aa 158-497, indicating it is specific for aa 498-653. This experiment was conducted under non-reducing conditions only and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

ADAM8, also known as cell surface antigen MS2 or CD156a, is a member of the ADAM family that contains a disintegrin and metalloprotease-like domain (1, 2). ADAM8 can cleave a variety of substrates and has been shown as a sheddase for the low affinity IgE receptor CD23 and the neural recognition molecule CHL1 (3, 4). Expression and regulation studies suggest that ADAM8 is a novel osteoclast stimulating factor and may play a role in asthma (5, 6). The 824 amino acid precursor of human ADAM8 consists of a signal peptide (residues 1 to 16), a pro peptide (residues 17 to 199), a metaloprotease domain (residues 200 to 400), a disintegrin-like domain (residues 408 to 494), a cysteine-rich region (residues 497 to 613), an EGF-like domain (residues 614 to 640), a transmembrane region (residues 656 to 676) and a cytoplasmic domain (residues 677 to 824).
