A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin type 1 motifs, number 13 (ADAMTS13) is a plasma zinc metalloprotease also known as von Willebrand factor (VWF)-cleaving protease. Deficiency of ADAMTS13 activity is known to cause thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) in humans. We isolated the canine ADAMTS13 cDNA, which encodes 1502 amino acids, and expressed the recombinant protein to evaluate VWF-cleaving ability. Although the propeptide domain was longer and the TSP1 repeat domain was shorter than those in other species, the overall structures were similar to human and mouse ADAMTS13. Recombinant canine ADAMTS13 cleaved the 250-kDa VWF monomer into two fragments of 150kDa and 120kDa. Furthermore, high molecular weight VWF multimers were abolished based on the activity of ADAMTS13. These results could facilitate research into hemostatic disorders such as TTP in dogs.
