ADAMTS7B, the full-length product of the ADAMTS7 gene, is a chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan containing a mucin domain.

ADAMTS7B has a domain organization similar to that of ADAMTS12, with a total of eight thrombospondin type 1 repeats in its ancillary domain. Of these, seven are arranged in two distinct clusters that are separated by a mucin domain. Unique to the ADAMTS family… (More)
