Activation of ADAM 12 protease by copper.


Conversion of latent proteases to the active form occurs by various mechanisms characteristic for different protease families. Here we report that the disintegrin metalloprotease ADAM 12-S is activated by Cu(II). Copper activation is distinct from the cysteine switch component of latency: elimination of the ADAM 12 cysteine switch by a point mutation in the… (More)
