Decorin from bovine articular cartilage

salt-free, lyophilized powder, sterile-filtered



Biochem/physiol Actions

Decorin interacts with collagen type I and II, fibronectin, thrombospondin and TGF-β.

Other Notes

Decorin is an approx. 100 kDa proteoglycan consisting of a 40 kDa core protein and one chondroitin or dermatan sulfate glycosaminoglycan chain.


0.5 mg in glass bottle

General description

Decoran is a small proteoglycan composed of a chondroitin/dermatan sulfate glycosaminoglycans attached to a 40 kDa core protein. It is found primarily in the extracellular matrix of articular cartilage. Decorin interacts with collagen types I and II via its core protein wherein it delays fibrillogenesis. Decorin also interacts with fibronectin, thrombospondin and TGF-β isoforms, and the EGF-receptor.
