      Background InformationAggregating chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan or aggrecan, is one of the most studied proteoglycans. Many individual monomers of aggrecan bind to hyaluronic acid to form an aggregate, the monomer is known as aggrecan. The aggregates are comprised of up to 100 monomers attached to a single chain of hyaluronic acid. The high content of negatively charged polysaccharide chains contributes to the osmotic swelling of cartilage and in combination with intact collagen fibers results in articular cartilage resistance to compressive forces and high tensile strength. Aggrecan is abundant in articular cartilage and compromises 10% of its dry weight.

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryThis gene is a member of the aggrecan/versican proteoglycan family. The encoded protein is an integral part of the extracellular matrix in cartilagenous tissue and it withstands compression in cartilage. Mutations in this gene may be involved in skeletal dysplasia and spinal degeneration. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different protein isoforms have been observed in this gene.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: P16112 # This proteoglycan is a major component of extracellular matrix of cartilagenous tissues. A major function of this protein is to resist compression in cartilage. It binds avidly to hyaluronic acid via an N-terminal globular region.
      SIZE: 2415 amino acids; 250193 Da
      SUBUNIT: Interacts with FBLN1 (By similarity).
      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix (By similarity).
      TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Restricted to cartilages.
      DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE: Expression was detected in chondrocytes throughout the developing skeleton.
      DOMAIN: SwissProt: P16112 Two globular domains, G1 and G2, comprise the N-terminus of the proteoglycan, while another globular region, G3, makes up the C-terminus. G1 contains Link domains and thus consists of three disulfide-bonded loop structures designated as the A, B, B' motifs. G2 is similar to G1. The keratan sulfate (KS) and the chondroitin sulfate (CS) attachment domains lie between G2 and G3.
      PTM: Contains mostly chondroitin sulfate, but also keratan sulfate chains, N-linked and O-linked oligosaccharides. The release of aggrecan fragments from articular cartilage into the synovial fluid at all stages of human osteoarthritis is the result of cleavage by aggrecanase.
      DISEASE: SwissProt: P16112 # Defects in AGC1 are the cause of spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia type Kimberley (SEDK) [MIM:608361]. Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasias are a heterogeneous group of congenital chondrodysplasias that specifically affect epiphyses and vertebrae. The autosomal dominant SEDK is associated with premature degenerative arthropathy.
      SIMILARITY: Belongs to the aggrecan/versican proteoglycan family. & Contains 1 C-type lectin domain. & Contains 1 EGF-like domain. & Contains 1 Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain. & Contains 4 Link domains. & Contains 1 Sushi (CCP/SCR) domain.

      Anti-Aggrecan - Data Sheet


      What is the best primary antibody dilution buffer? At Millipore ,we always recommend to dilute our primary antibody solutions in very simple buffers, usually only TBS or PBS without excess blocking proteins, detergents or other compounds, particularly preservatives such as azide (particularly important if using HRP detections systems: NEVER MIX AZIDE and HRP for the best results as azide is a very powerful inhibitor of HRP]. By keeping the primary antibody simple, this increase antibody-antigen interaction and can increase staining, and when sample has been properly blocked and prepared we have seen increase in background, and often see an improvement in the signal to noise ratio with simple, dilute primary antibody dilution buffers.
