A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin motifs 13 (ADAM-TS13)

Links to databases


ADAM-TS 13 (also known as von Willebrand factor-cleaving protease, VWFCP) is a is a zinc-containing metalloprotease that cleaves vWF multimers in plasma and so controls vWF-mediated platelet thrombus formation. Defficiency in ADAM-TS13 gives rise to thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, in which small blood vessels throughout the body are subject to extensive microscopic clots that can lead to signficant organ damage.

Analytical Measuring Range

Please note: the technical data reported below refers to the measured value in the in vitro validation assays. The calibrator curve below shows the performance of the assay with the estimated sensitivity and dynamic range parameters indicated. These curves are generated during the assay validation process using recombinant antigens. Please note that when analyzing biological samples the data generated will be given in the form of relative quantification (NPX values) and cannot be converted to absolute protein concentrations. For more info about NPX measurements, please visit our FAQ page (https://www.olink.com/question/what-is-npx).

    • Within run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
    • 4%
    • Between run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
    • 10%

Precision (repeatability) is calculated from linearized NPX values over LOD.
