Research Category
Research Sub Category
Neurodegenerative Diseases

Physical form

Purified Neurocan in PBS. Contains no preservative.

Storage and Stability

Maintain at -20°C in undiluted aliquots for up to 12 months. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

Analysis Note

A mix of Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglycans from chick brain (Chemicon CC117) was purified by the unique density and size of this class of molecules. Neurocan is purified from this mix using an immobilized monoclonal antibody. The resulting neurocan is pure and has chondroitin sulfate attached. Removing the chondroitin sulfate with chondroitinase, results in core proteins are primarily the full-length 250 kD form and a little of smaller neurocan fragments.

Chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans inhibit the adhesion of cells to extracellular matrix proteins that otherwise permit adhesion. Although proteoglycans are widely assumed to act by masking the other protein in a mixed substrate, recent studies suggest that proteoglycans inhibit adhesion through

Aggrecan is the major proteoglycan in articular cartilage and is known to be degraded by various proteases, including matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). The present study was undertaken to develop immunoassays detecting aggrecan and its fragments generated by MMP and non-MMP-mediated proteolysis.
