Glypican 3 human

recombinant, expressed in NSO cells



Biochem/physiol Actions

Sulfate proteoglycan attached to the cell surface by a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor. Regulates cell survival and inhibits cell proliferation during normal development. Potential use as marker for early disease detection.

Physical form

Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS containing 50 μg of bovine serum albumin per 1 μg of cytokine.

General description

Glypican-3, a cell surface protein, is highly expressed in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and few other human cancers including melanoma. It is a heparan sulfate proteoglycan and is present on the cell surface. Under non-reducing conditions in SDS-PAGE, the glycanated glypican 3 appears as a smear with an apparent molecular mass of 60 - 100 kDa

Glycosaminoglycan Sulfation and Signaling

Glycosaminoglycans are large linear polysaccharides constructed of repeating disaccharide units. The disaccharide units that are the basis of all glycosaminoglycans (except keratan) are a combination...
